Yet again, another Plum recipe…I would apologize but I’m really not sorry. As you should know, i absolutely LOVE baking with plums. Since the season is soon to an end, I need to make as many things as possible.
Being that I had some plums around the house I wanted to bake something but I was feeling a bit lazy so a galette would have to do. Galette’s are like freeform rustic pies with all the fuss of a proper pie. They do well with whatever type of fruit you may have around the house or whatever may be in season.
For the crust, I used half of a recipe for an All-Butter Crust.
For the Filling
6-8 Plums, pitted, halved & cut into 1/4 inch slices
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Butter, melted
For the Glaze
2 Plums, pitted and grated
1/2 Cup Sugar
Pre-heat the over to 375 F.
Grate two plums into a pot and pour the 1/2 Cup of sugar on top, set aside.
Roll out the chilled dough. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sugar around the dough leaving about 1 1/2 in border. Arrange the plum slices, slightly overlapping in concentric circles. Sprinkle another tablespoon of sugar on top.
Roll the border up towards the plums. Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of sugar.
Bake for 45 minutes.
While the galette bakes, make the glaze. Place the pot with the sugar and plum of high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil. Bring the heat down and cook for 6-7 minutes until the mixture is thickened, remove from the heat. Using an immersion blender, blend the glaze to smooth it completely and pass it though a fine mesh sieve. Set the glaze to the side.
Once the galette has finished, let it cool for 10 minutes. Brush the warm glaze over the top of the and serve it warm.
You will have leftover glaze. Use it over some ice cream or if its thick enough you can spread some on some toast for breakfast.
