Ingredients

  • 2 pears, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced You could also use all apples(3) or all pears (4)
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (light or dark is fine, I used light) 70 g
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour 9 g
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed 400 g or 14 oz, see notes on thawing
  • 2 tablespoon butter, cold and sliced into thin pats 28 g
  • 1 beaten egg for egg wash

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 390 F (200C).
  • In a large bowl, toss sliced apples and pears with lemon juice, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and ginger powder.
  • Roll out puff pastry dough into a 1/4 inch thick, 12 inch circle. Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and arrange the fruit slices in the center, leaving a dough border free. You can see more in the video attached under the nutritional information!
  • Fold the dough over the fruit filling, place butter pats evenly on fruit.
  • Brush the edges of the dough with egg wash, and bake for 25-30 min until golden brown. Enjoy warm, preferably served with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!

Notes

The puff pastry sheet should thaw quickly, 30 minutes or so at room temperature. You can also stick the frozen puff pastry overnight in the fridge to thaw.
You can use any type of apples you like, green or red. You can also only apples or only pears.
Leftovers can be stored for 2-3 days in the fridge, and reheated in the microwave or the oven. They'll actually still taste great!
Unbaked and baked whole galettes can also be frozen up to 3 months in the fridge, and thawed overnight in the fridge before baking/heating.
For homemade caramel sauce, try this recipe for Orange Blossom Salted Caramel
or this Honey Caramel Sauce
