Apple and Pear Galette recipe -  A flaky puff pastry forms the perfect crust for apples and pears sauteed in butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. A dessert that looks impressive but so easy to make! | ZagLeft

This rustic apple and pear galette recipe has been so good to me. Many times I’ve had to prepare a dessert for unexpected guests with only the few ingredients I have on hand and no time to rush to the store. With a galette, all you need is a sheet of puff pastry, fruit, and a few pantry staples.

This simple apple and pear galette recipe is the recipe I go to when I find myself either needing a special treat to bring to a gathering or when I want something sweet but don’t want to invest a whole lot of time.

Galette

A galette is a French pastry similar to a pie or tart. Basically, it’s pastry dough topped and sometimes wrapped over a fruit filling. A galette is so much easier to make than a pie, especially if you use packaged puff pastry dough.

Galettes are pretty. They’re simple, they’re rustic (which means they can be forgiving) and in the case of this apple and pear galette, the combination of apples and pears sautéed in butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon is absolutely wonderful.

I like to keep a package of puff pastry in my freezer so that I can make quick desserts like this galette or a chicken pot pie in very little time.

Pro cooking tip: Keep a package of puff pastry in your freezer. If you freeze puff pastry dough, just let the dough rest on your counter for about 20 to 30 minutes before working with it. The dough will come to room temperature and will be very easy to work with.
