Plum Raspberry Galette

August 13, 2013

This is recipe that can be changed up with whatever fruit looks extra yummy in the market. A galette is a type of rustic fruit tart that is made without a tart pan. The free form make it extra fun. I used fresh plums and raspberries. What will you try?

You will need:

  • 1/2 c walnuts, toasted
  • 1 T + 1 t sugar, divided
  • 1 t + 1/4 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 4 T cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 3 T ice water
  • 3 T honey
  • 3 fresh plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 pint fresh raspberries

Then you will…

  1. Remove 2 tablespoons of walnuts from the half cup. Chop them into small pieces and combine with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Set aside. These will be used on top of the fruit and to garnish the pastry crust.
  2. Place the flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar, remaining walnuts, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts are finely ground into the flour.
  3. Add the cold butter pieces and pulse until the mixture looks like a coarse meal.
  4. Whisk together the egg yolk and ice water.
  5. Add to the dough mixture and pulse until it comes together in clumps.
  6. Turn the dough out onto plastic wrap. Squish it together and mold it into a disk, about 1-2 inches think.
  7. Wrap tightly and chill for about 30 minutes or until chilled enough to roll.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I recommend using one with sides in case your galette bubbles).
  9. Lightly flour the surface where you want to roll out your dough. Roll it into a 14-inch circle. Slide the dough onto your prepared baking sheet.
  10. Place the plum slices on the dough, leaving about a 1.5-inch border around the edges.
  11. Top with raspberries and drizzle with the honey.
  12. Fold the edge of the dough over the filling.
  13. Sprinkle with the nut mixture. Lightly press it into the dough edge.
  14. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden.
  15. Cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
