Cinnamon Pear Galette

Cinnamon Pear Galette

If you're looking for a dessert recipe to use up your pears, we have you covered! (Honest moment: This pear galette didn't turn out quite how we expected it to look, but we think it made up for it in taste. Plus, it was fun to make and uses simple ingredients.)



Cinnamon Pear Galette
  • 1 cup flower

  • 2 tsp sugar - we used cane sugar

  • 4 tbsp butter

  • 2 tbsp yogurt

  • 2 tbsp cold water


  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

  • 6 small pears

  • 3 tbsp sugar

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Cinnamon Pear Galette
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  2. Add flour and sugar to bowl and cut in butter. Then add yogurt and cold water and knead dough until crumbly

  3. Press dough into pie dish, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes

  4. Cut pears into slices and add into a bowl with cornstarch and cinnamon

  5. Once dough is chilled, add the pear mixture in the center of the dish. Fold the edges of dough over the edges of the filling (this is the step that we missed when making the galette you see in the photo above!)

  6. Bake for 40 minutes


  • Be careful to not knead the dough too much. Ours came out a bit dense as a result of kneading it too long, so try not to overwork the dough

  • Ideally the crust would fold over the filling but if yours turns out looking like ours, just remember that it's the taste that matters!

  • Drizzle with caramel or honey to add some extra flavor or serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
