A versatile, easy to make dessert. This recipe can be modified if you don’t have any figs (use 6 apples) or you can add other fruit of choice, depending on what’s in season or what you have on hand.


  • 2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced, (if only using apples, 6 apples)
  • 6 figs, stemmed and quartered
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • In large mixing bowl combine flour, butter, sugar and salt until a crumbly dough forms
  • Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface
  • Transfer dough to baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Brush dough with melted butter
  • Arrange apples and fig slices (or just apple slices) in center of dough, leaving a border of about 1-2 inches around the edges
  • Fold edges of dough up and over fruit, pressing gently to seal dough in place.
  • Get a small bowl and whisk maple syrup and water
  • Proceed to brush mixture over dough and fruit, (if only using apples- brush primarily over fruit slices and brush dough with melted butter. If figs are used, the moisture content prevents apples from becoming too dry in this recipe)
  • Bake galette in oven 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and fruit is tender
  • Allow to cool and serve a la mode!
