We love galettes! It’s a French-style free form pie that can be made savory or sweet. This week on In The Kitch, cooking personality, Johanna M. Cook whips up a Rustic Pear Galette recipe straight from the French market. Check out this recipe for Caprese Galette.

Pear Galette Recipe


1 sheet of store-bought puff pastry, thawed and chilled in the refrigerator

2 pears, sliced thinly

1/2 granulated sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter


Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Take a baking sheet and butter the bottom of the sheet. Take the puff pastry and lay it on the baking sheet. With a fork, gently poke the sheet in the middle and around.

In a mixing bowl, gently toss together the pears, cinnamon and sugar until all the pears are fully coated. Then, take the pears and carefully arrange them on the pastry sheet, leaving edges for the crust.

Gently fold over the edges, creating a crust around the pears. Then, take a butter and cut them into small cubes and place them on top of the pears.

Bake the galette in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Great with ice cream!
