Fig Galette

I love desserts that are healthy and super quick to make. When I was at the farm market this week I found a pint of small figs. What to do? What to do? When in doubt make a galette. Here is my recipe for a Mediterranean Fig Galette.

My figs were tiny so I cut them in halves. But if you find larger figs, you may want to quarter them.

Mediterranean Fig Galette

Ingredients:
1 pint of figs, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 pie crust, pre-made
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
juice of half a lemon
1 tablespoon Demerara sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pie tin

Directions:
Preheat over to 425 degrees F.

Spread the pie crust over the pie tin and mold it into the bottom. Spread the marmalade in the center of the pie crust. If the marmalade is thick you may want to warm it up a little.

In a mixing bowl combine the figs, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon and salt. Mix together. Pour into the pie tin. Sprinkle with sugar. Fold the crust over around the edges. I told you it was super easy.

Bake at 425 degrees F. for 30-40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Let cool before serving.

Notes:

  • The taste of orange complements the figs nicely. You may want to try adding a little orange zest.
  • If you prefer a shiny crust, you can make an egg wash out of an egg yolk combined with a little water. Brush the wash onto the exposed crust. Follow the same baking instructions.
  • If you get tired of hearing about pumpkin pie spiced everything this time of year, this fig galette is the perfect antidote. Try serving it at Thanksgiving dinner.

Have you ever cooked with figs? If so, I’d love for you to share your recipes. Let me know if you give this recipe a try.
