Apricot Galette

apricot galette

This is the first time I made Apricot Galette and surprised with the result, so yummy… it was so perfect to serve this after dinner as dessert, so fruity!. It would be more perfect if you serve it with whipped cream on top of it. As dessert or Coffee time, as you like :-). To be honest, I don’t have many recipes with apricot, normally I combine it into my smoothie. One of my recipe with apricot is; Sautéed Chicken Breast with Apricot Salsa.

  1. My hands always get so hot the butter melts when I work with the dough! But I am thinking the addition of ice water would help – I don’t recall seeing that in other galette pastry recipes, I think it might make all the difference for me!! Thanks! Also, do you think this will work with canned (drained) apricots? They aren’t in season here. I am wondering how absorbent the pastry is and whether canned apricots, being a bit juicer than fresh ones, will just soak the pastry too much

    • Hallo Nagi, I think it will also work with canned apricots (I never tried before), but you have to coat it first with some flour, so that the pastry not too wet. I hope it works well, maybe I should try with canned apricot too:-) I’ll let you know 🙂
