Home / Recipes / Roasted Fig Frangipane Galette
I love galettes, pies and tarts of all kinds. The more rustic, the better (I am creatively challenged when it comes to making things look pretty and all dolled up!). A galette is nothing but pastry dough, topped lovingly with some fresh fruit, etc., and baked in the oven like a tart without the mould. I filled mine with some frangipane, which is a concoction of almond paste, butter, sugar, vanilla and egg. The beauty of this galette is in the contrasting textures. The crumbly, buttery goodness of the crust with the squishy, subtle sweetness of the figs is beautifully complemented by the frangipane. The pastry dough has been adapted from a blog called Butter Baking.
