Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon butter melted and cooled
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Blue Diamond® Almond Flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium sized bowl mix melted butter, sugar, almond flour, one egg, vanilla extract and all purpose flour. Set aside.
  • Roll out the pie crust and spoon out the frangipane mixture onto the crust, leaving 2-3 inches border on all sides.
  • Place the pear slices on the frangipane and make sure they're close to each other. Sprinkle the cinnamon on the pears.
  • Fold the edges over the filling, overlapping the dough as necessary.
  • Crack the remaining one egg in a small bowl and beat to combine. Brush it on the crust.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the curst is golden and flaky.
  • Cool for 10 minutes and then slice. Serve with ice cream if desired.

Notes

  • Galette is meant to be rustic and imperfect, you don't need to fold the edges all symmetrical and perfect.
  • Top the crust with sliced almonds for more crunch.
  • Oven temperatures vary, therefore keep a close-eye on the galette after 25 minutes. It's ready when the crust is golden and flaky.
