Maple Pear Galette
- 1 Recipe puff pastry
- 3 pears, peeled, cored, and sliced ⅛-inch thin
- ¼ cup butter
- 3 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
- 1 egg white mixed with 2 Tbsp water
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicon baking mat.
- In a 2 quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Stir constantly, allowing butter to foam, then brown, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat when butter has a nutty, amazingly delicious scent, golden color and little brown bits. Allow to cool slightly.
- In a bowl, toss together sliced pears, browned butter, maple syrup, cornstarch, cinnamon, and vanilla paste.
- Roll out the puff pastry into a 12-inch diameter circle. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Arrange pears in the center of the pastry in a mostly even layer, leaving a two inch border between the fruit and edge of the pastry.
- Fold edges of the pastry over the fruit. There will be a large hole in the center for steam to escape. Freeze galette for 15 minutes. Brush crust with egg wash. Bake in the preheated oven 30-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden and puffed and filling is bubbly.
