Recipe: Apple-Pear Galette

A fool-proof elegant recipe that is much more than the sum of its parts.

Galette is a fancy name for a free-form tart. It's a great treat, very elegant and easy to make. You can serve it for dessert, drizzled with some local honey, or as a first course on a green salad.

You will need:
Ready-rolled puff pastry cut into 4 -6 inch
2 Pears or apples halved, cored and sliced into ¼ inch
1 teaspoon butter + butter for melting and brushing
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon brown sugar to sprinkle over galettes
Buttercup Brie slices, the number of the galette square (or any other quality brie)

Method: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cut puff pastry into 6 inch squares, brush with butter
Arrange apples or pear slices over pastry,  brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar and Cinnamon.
Bake in a 350 degrees oven 20 minutes the until the dough is nicely golden-brown.
Pull out of the oven and arrange the brie slices on top. Return to the oven and Bake until brie is soft but not completely runny.
Drizzle with some honey and serve immediately.
