Recipe Details


Elegant, delicious, and deceptively easy to put together, this pear galette is equally perfect for jazzing up a weeknight as it is for a weekend dinner party. Sliced d’Anjou pears are tossed in a sultry combination of maple syrup, ginger, and crunchy almonds, then spooned into puff pastry. The galette is baked until golden, tender, and totally irresistible.

    Cooking Steps

    1. Prepare ingredients

      Prepare ingredients

      Preheat oven to 375°F. Rinse pear and slice off rounded sides, discarding core, then cut into ¼-inch slices and place in a large heatproof bowl (if you don't have a microwave for Step 3, skip the bowl). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2. Form and parbake crust

      Form and parbake crust

      Arrange puff pastry squares on prepared sheet in a 2x2 square, overlapping edges by about ¼ inch. Gently press and pinch seams to tightly seal. Using a fork, pierce pastry all over—this keeps the center from puffing up during baking. Roll and fold outer edges of pastry inward to create a circular crust with a 2-inch border. Bake until crust is light golden, 16-18 minutes.

    3. Make pear filling

      Make pear filling

      While crust bakes, microwave pears until slightly softened, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Alternatively, heat ½ tablespoon canola oil in a small pan over medium heat and cook pears 5-6 minutes to soften. Pour off any excess liquid from pears. Then, add almonds, flour, ginger, cinnamon, sugar, half of maple syrup, and ¼ teaspoon salt and toss to combine. Save remaining maple syrup for tomorrow's pancakes.

    4. Fill galette

      Fill galette

      Once crust is lightly browned, spoon pear filling into center and gently spread in an even layer, preserving border.

    5. Bake galette

      Bake galette

      Return galette to oven and continue baking until pastry is golden and pear is completely tender and caramelized, 13-16 minutes. (P.S. This is a great time to get a head start on dishes!)

    6. Plate galette

      Plate galette

      Cut maple-pear galette into quarters and divide among serving plates. Enjoying à la mode (with a scoop of vanilla ice cream) is optional, but highly encouraged.
