Day 8: Fruit Galette

Yield: 2-3 people
Time (Start to Finish): 1.5 hours

1/3 sheet puff pastry
1 Tbsp cream cheese
1 egg
½ apple
½ pear
1 apricot
Sugar (for sprinkling)
Honey (for drizzling)

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Put puff pastry sheet onto nonstick sheet pan
3. Mix egg and cream cheese until smooth and brush puff pastry with mixture.
4. Sprinkle puff pastry with sugar
5. Peel apple, pear and apricot and cut into slices, not too thin
6. On puff pastry alternate apple, apricot, pear, apricot, making sure they are tight together and slightly elevated. You will have extra fruit which is perfect for snacking
7. Sprinkle with sugar and brush with more egg mixture. Don’t put on too much egg or it will pour off the sides when baking (if that happens just cut it off with a knife) left over egg can be cooked up for a nice scrambled egg
8. Sprinkle with more sugar and bake 25-30 min until bottom becomes lightly brown
9. Remove from oven and drizzle honey on top

Rating: 5 strawberries
Notes: I just think this is great for breakfast or dessert. You can add more cream cheese if you like, or change up the fruits. It will be a little doughy and soft, and if you like a firmer crust, feel free to prebake the crust a little before you add the fruit. Don’t over bake it. This is my one-week anniversary!! I made it through my first week! Don’t worry, not all recipes with be bready or desert related, but this week I was really excited and motivated. Thanks to all who have helped me this week (mainly my roomies Travis, Alley and Christina who have tasted everything I have made) and look forward to more and more recipes! Email questions or concerns!
