VIBES: ESG “Moody”


Adapted from this recipe via The Kitchn


2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
14 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 to 1/2 cup ice water


6 medium pears, peeled and cored
Juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat the oven to 425°F.

Pulse the flour, salt, sugar, and butter in a food processor until crumbly. Slowly process in 1/3 cup of ice water just until it comes together in a dough. If necessary, add the remainder of the water. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate while you prepare the fruit.

Thinly slice the pears about 1/4-inch thick and toss with the lemon juice, brown sugar, flour, and spices. Take the dough out of the fridge and gently roll out onto a lightly greased large round pizza pan, or rectangular baking sheet, until it’s about 12 inches in diameter and 1/8-inch thick.

Lay the fruit out in overlapping circles or rows over the dough, leaving a small border, then fold the pastry up around the outer edges. Dot the top of the galette with cubes of butter, then mix together the sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle it over the top.

Bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until browned and crispy on the bottom. Cool to room temperature or serve slightly warm!
