Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour + a small amount for rolling out crust

  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch pieces, or vegan butter

  • 1 egg yolk

  • ¼ cup ice water

Filling

  • 2 pounds ripe plums, halved and pitted

  • ⅓ cup honey 

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 egg yolk

Preparation

Crust

  1. In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, honey, butter, and egg yolk until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. With the motor running, add water 1 teaspoon at a time until dough forms a ball and clings together (you may not need all the water).
  3. Gather dough and flatten to a disk, wrap in parchment, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.

Or frozen pie crust, thawed 

Filling

  1. Slice plum halves into thin wedges and toss with honey, cornstarch, and lemon zest and juice.
  2. Roll out dough, on lightly floured surface, to a 12-inch circle.
  3. Pile filling into center of dough. Gather edges of dough and draw them to center, allowing the dough to fall into pleats. You should have a 3- to 4-inch opening to show off plums.
  4. Chill galette for 30 minutes.

Glaze

Preheat oven to 400°F.

  1. Brush galette with honey glaze. Bake galette at 400°F for 40 to 50 minutes or until dough is medium brown and filling is bubbly.
  2. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
