Pear and Honeyed Goat Cheese Galette

Disclaimer: This is not my recipe all the credit goes to Bake from Scratch in their v.4 cookbook you can buy it: here

I didn’t realize I forgot to post this amazing recipe! I made this Pear and Honeyed Goat Cheese Galette for Mother’s day brunch this year. The galette was bursting with flavor. Goat cheese is my family’s favorite cheese, I would say, so everyone enjoyed it. The best part is how beautiful and elegant a galette is, but very easy to make! The goat cheese calmed down the sweetness from the honey and pears. I would definitely recommend this recipe for a nice brunch or mid day treat.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (3 g) kosher salt
  • ¾ cup (170 g) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 4 ounces (115 g) cold goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons (30 g) ice water
  • Honeyed Goat Cheese Filling (recipe follows)
    • 6 ounces (175 grams) goat cheese
    • 3 tablespoons (63 grams) clover honey
    • 1½ tablespoons (21 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 slightly firm medium Bosc pears (537 g)
  • 1 large egg (50 g)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) water
  • 1 tablespoon (12 g) granulated sugar
  • Garnish: clover honey, fresh rosemary

Directions

  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, place flour and salt; pulse until combined. Add cold butter and cold goat cheese, and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Add vinegar, pulsing until combined. With processor running, add ice water, 1 tablespoon (15 grams) at a time, just until dough comes together. Turn out dough, and shape into a disk. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 14-inch circle, about ¼ inch thick. Transfer to prepared pan.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together goat cheese and honey until smooth. Whisk in brown sugar and nutmeg. Use immediately, or refrigerate until ready to use. Spread Honeyed Goat Cheese Filling onto dough, leaving a 2-inch border.
  5. Cut pears in half vertically through stems. Scoop out core of each half. Place pears cut side down, and cut into thin slices, leaving about ½ inch intact below stem. Fan pears out, and place on top of filling, overlapping as needed. Fold edges of dough over pears.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon (15 grams) water. Brush egg wash onto dough, and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake until crust is golden and bottom is browned, 25 to 35 minutes. Let cool on pan for 10 minutes. Garnish with honey and rosemary, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.
