When plums are in season, i really like to capitalise on them by using them in all kinds of deserts like this one. It's easy and serves many for very little

What You'll Need - Makes 1 Gallette 

  • I Pack Puff Pastry (Store Bought) 
  • 4-5 Red Plums 
  • Cream Cheese 
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • Sugar 
  • Flour 
  • Butter

Prep - 20 Minutes 

  • Thaw the puff pastry beforehand overnight in the fridge or in a sunny area for quicker thawing. 
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees bake 
  • Unroll the pastry onto a surface that has been dusted with flour 
  • Lightly dust the top of the pastry and using a rolling pin, roll it out slightly so that its half in its thickness 
  • Find a large round stencil/bowl/pot - anything you can use to mould out a rough circle from the pastry. Cut out the circle. 
  • Place baking or parchment paper on a wire rack and sit the wire rack in an oven tray (Putting the pastry on a wire rack allows for even cooking) 
  • Transfer the dough onto the wire rack. 
  • Slice each plum into eight slices and arrange them in a single layer leaving about 3-4cm from the edge of the pastry. 
  • Sprinkle sugar on top of the plums and squeeze the juice of half the lemon on to the plums. 
  • Fold in the edges of the pastry and brush the exposed pastry with melted butter 
  • Cover the gallete with foil 

Let's Get Cooking - 45 Minutes 

  • Place the galette into the oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes with the foil on until the plums are cooked. 
  • Remove the foil and allow the pastry to brown. 
  • Remove from the oven 
  • Served with a sprinkle of icing sugar and some fresh cream or ice cream.
