How to make a plum and almond galette

 

Ingredients
Topping:

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


Galette:

  • 5 ripe plums
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 sheet prepared butter
  • Puff pastry rolled to 12" x 12" square
  • 1 free-range egg yolk
  • 1 tsp coarse sugar crystals


Directions
1 Preheat the oven to 375F. Toast the almonds on a baking sheet for about 7 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool slightly, then combine with the butter, sugar, flour and cinnamon until crumbly. Set aside.

2 Cut each plum into 8 wedges and toss together with 1/4 cup brown sugar.

3 Place the prepared puff pastry on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Spread half the almond mixture in the centre of the pastry square. Mound the plums over top of the almond mixture, leaving a 2" border of pastry.

4 Sprinkle the remaining almond mixture on top of the plums. Pull the pastry edges up over the outer layer of plums to form a rough circle, pleating the pastry as you go. Brush the pastry with egg yolk and sprinkle with coarse sugar crystals. Bake for 40 minutes, until the pastry is golden and the plums have softened. Allow to cool before serving.
