Rustic Pear Galette


Main ingredients


1 frozen Gefen Pie Crust
2 pears, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons Heaven & Earth Lemon Juice
A healthy sprinkling of sugar (about 1/4 cup)
A sprinkling of flour (about 2 tablespoons)
A sprinkling of cinnamon (about 1 teaspoon)
1 egg white or 3 tablespoons Haddar Egg Whites
turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw), for sprinkling


Prepare the Pear Galette


  1. Let pie crust thaw at room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. When pie crust is soft but still cold, turn out onto a piece of parchment paper. Roll into a circle. It does not have to be neat or even.
  4. Add pear mixture to the center of the dough in a pretty, even pattern. Fold edges of dough over the pear filling.
  5. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 20–25 minutes, until pie crust is golden.
