Why You'll Love This Recipe

I love making galettes because in my eyes they are just easier pies! Butter, flaky pie crust is filled with fresh plums, honey, and a hint of cinnamon. I brush the crust with my favorite eggless pie wash – just a one to one ratio of honey and water! And I sprinkle the crust with sliced almonds.

This Honey Almond Plum Galette will make a delicious dessert for Thanksgiving if you want to stray from the classics, or even have something extra! I have a ton of plums right now from my friend’s tree in Bishop. Plums are a stone fruit, and you can use them similar to how you would use peaches or nectarines in desserts. So they really are a delicious option for galettes!

How to Make Honey Almond Plum Galette

Step 1

To make the crust: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour and cane sugar.

Step 2

Remove butter from the fridge and chop into small cubes, the smaller your cubes are the flakier your crust. I recommend at least cutting the sticks of butter into 4 and then chop into small cubes from there. Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture. Measure out cold water and have ready.

Turn mixer on low and slowly start to incorporate all the ingredients. Gradually turn mixer to medium speed. Once the butter mixture looks like wet sand, immediately add in all the water. As soon as the dough comes together, stop mixer.

Using your hands, form the dough into a disk and place in plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 4

Slice the plums, I like to leave skins on, but you can remove if you prefer. Add plums to a large bowl with the cane sugar, honey, flour, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix together.

Step 5

Remove the pie dough from the fridge. Remove the plastic wrap and place on a floured surface. Roll out the into a square that is 1/4-inch thick, it should be about 10 inches diameter.

Step 6

Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Grab about 6 plum slices, making sure they are all facing the same way, place onto the pie dough, leaving about a 1-inch boarder around the edge. Grab about 6 more plum slices and lay them opposite the ones you just laid (watch video). Continue all the way around and into the pie until it’s filled. (Alternatively, you can just mix them all together and dump into the middle of the dough for a faster and just as delicious galette!). Fold the extra crust into the middle of the galette to make a boarder.

Step 7

To make the topping: In a small dish, add the honey and water. Microwave for 10 seconds to melt the honey.

Using a pastry brush, brush the crust of the galette with the honey and water. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top.

Step 8

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. (Make sure to check the Notes section of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions if you are baking above 5,000 feet.) Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar before serving.

FAQ's

Can I use another fruit besides plums?

Yes, if you want to use peaches or nectarines, those are both stone fruit and would be delicious in this galette! Apples would also be a really great substitute.

Do I need to make the pie crust in a mixer?

Absolutely not! You can definitely use a bowl and your hands! If you have a pastry cutter, you can use that to cut the butter into the flour. Otherwise, just use your hands and smoosh it together until it looks like wet sand, then add in your water. Don’t use a hand mixer. For more tips on how to make pie crust, check out my article All Butter Pie Crust.

Can I make this ahead of time?

The pie dough needs to be made 24 hours in advance of when you’d like to bake the galette. You can keep the pie dough in the fridge for up to 48 hours before rolling out, but no longer. If something comes up and you can’t roll out the galette within 48 hours of making the pie dough, then just put the pie dough in the freezer! You can easily defrost in the fridge 24 hours before you do plan to make it.

You can roll out the galette and bake the day before you plan to serve this galette. Be sure to store at room temperature and do not cover. You don’t want to cover this in a cake dome or Tupperware as the crust will be become soggy. You can also reheat this in the oven at 350°F for 5 to 10 minutes to crisp up the crust and it will taste like you just baked it!

Do I need to lay the plums exactly like you do in the video?

No way! I just did this for fun as I thought it would look pretty. You can just mix them together and dump them into the middle of the pie dough and spread out evenly, making sure to leave a 1-inch boarder for the crust. It will taste just as delicious and be incredibly faster!

What do I do with the extra plums or filling if I do it the way you did?

If you lay the plums how I laid them out, you may end up with leftover plums or even filling. You can add these on top (if you want). But if you don’t want to mess up the pretty design, you can leave them off. Cook them up in a skillet and add on top of ice cream, pancakes, or waffles for a sweet topping!

How should I store this galette?

Extra should be stored in a cool dry place. On a plate on the counter is really the best option! You don’t want to store this in a cake dome or in a Tupperware as the crust will become soggy.

Can I reheat this galette?

Yes! Reheating it will make it taste the best the next day. You should reheat this in your oven, toaster oven, or air fryer (on bake) and the crust will crisp up just like it was fresh baked! Don’t use the microwave as will make it soggy!

What can I serve this Honey Almond Plum Galette with?

This is delicious all on its own, but great pairings include tea, coffee, milk, or even a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

Why organic?

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
