Fig and Almond Galette
August 11, 2012 § 3 Comments
Since it’s birthday month around here and with Nick recovering from surgery, it’s apparently turned me into a baker…Fresh figs from the backyard of the bee lab doesn’t help either.
I may have posted another rustic fig tart or fig galette recipe before, but this one was super easy and really cheap to make.
Adapted from Stacey Snacks
1 pie crust (or pastry dough)
12+ fresh figs, halved
1 cup of ground almonds (~1/2 container of whole almonds ground in food processor or 1 cup almond meal)
3 T melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
The quick steps
Make a frangipane by mixing the ground almonds, egg, sugar, and melted butter.
Lay out the dough on a parchment paper lined pan and spread the frangipane evenly across the dough leaving a 1 1/2 inch border.
Lay the fresh figs on top of the frangipane in as much of a decorative fashion as possible/desired.
Fold over the edges of the dough, creating the rustic tart. Brush with a little water, milk, or egg wash and sprinkle whole thing with a little sugar.
Bake at 375 for at least 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Let rest for a few minutes and eat it up!
