Simple Pear Galette


Last night I picked some pears off the pear trees on our farm and made a simple pear galette. My husband, who likes to beekeep, harvested some honey (dark and delicious from all the avocados), and a dollop of the honey was delicious on top of the galette! This recipe is just so simple, and you can make it with any type of fruit — apples, peaches, blueberries, etc. and/or a combination thereof! Enjoy.

Simple Pear Galette
  • 1 organic pre-made whole wheat pastry crust (from your organic grocer)
  • 3 c. pears, peeled and sliced
  • ¾ c. dried orange cranberries (or plump, soft raisins)
  • ⅓ c. raw pecan pieces (or walnuts, almonds)
  • ½ c. shredded sweet coconut
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp. cloves, ground
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Mix all the above ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with coconut oil.
  4. Unwrap the pre-made pastry crust (If you need to roll out the dough with a rolling pin to make it smooth, do so. Either roll it between the pieces of parchment paper it comes rolled up in, and/or lightly flour a rolling pin and your countertop so the dough doesn't stick to the rolling pin).
  5. Place the pre-made pastry crust on the oiled cookie sheet.
  6. Put spoonfuls of the fruit mix in the center of the pastry dough until you build a mound.
  7. Fold over the sides of the dough around the fruit.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes until slightly golden and bubbly.
  9. Serve immediately by itself, with a dollop of honey or vanilla bean ice cream.
