Pear & chocolate rustic galette

A dessert made of sweetness and simplicity : pear & chocolat rustic galette. A classic dessert that (almost) everyone like and the chocolate shavings makes it even prettier.

You can use a storebought crust if you are in a rush but I'd highly recommend trying this crispy crust because it is so so so good.

Pear & chocolate rustic galette :

For the dough :

  • 160g flour
  • 112g butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50g sugar
  • 30-40ml water

For the filling :

  • 3 pears
  • 2 tbsp almond powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • A few chocolate shavings
  • 1 egg

For the dough, mix in a bowl flour, salt and sugar.

Add cold butter cut into cubes. Mix with the tip of your fingers until you get a sandy mixture.

Add water tbsp by tbsp until a firm dough has form and it is still a little sticky. Cover and refrigerate until you're done with the rest of the recipe.

Meanwhile, slice the pears thinly and add it to a bowl.

Add to the pear lemon juice and brown sugar. Mix.

Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it onto a lightly floured surface.

Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.

Put the dough on a baking sheet.

Spread the almond powder evenly on the dough leaving room on the edges so we can fold it over the pears.

Put the pears on top of the almond flour and fold the edges over.

Brush the dough with a beaten egg.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Pears must be soft and crust golden brown.

Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
