Why You’ll Enjoy These Galettes

I adore these apricot and goat cheese galettes, and I’m sure you’ll love them just as much.

I’m saying so because you don’t need to be a pro baker to get these right. The dough is forgiving, and the filling is a simple toss of goat cheese and apricots.

These galettes are perfect for almost any time of day. I’ve served them as a brunch star, a quick yet satisfying dinner, and even on my dessert table. Plus, they’re just as fantastic and served at room temperature as warm.

The creamy, tangy goat cheese pairs beautifully with the sweet, slightly tart apricots. Every bite contrasts flavours and textures, with that buttery crust holding it all together.

Ingredients Needed for Apricot and Goat Cheese Galettes

Here’s a quick list of what you need to bake these apricot galettes:

  • Puff pastry thawed in the refrigerator: This is your galette foundation; keeping it chilled ensures a flaky rise when it bakes.
  • Apricots sliced: These bring a beautiful, sweet tartness that complements the creamy cheese. Make sure they’re ripe for the best flavor.
  • Goat cheese log: This cheese adds richness and a punch of herb-infused taste, making every bite more interesting.
  • Honey: Drizzle this on your galettes for a natural sweetness that complements the apricots and goat cheese.
  • Fresh thyme to sprinkle: This adds a fresh, earthy aroma that ties all the flavors wonderfully.
  • Crushed pistachios: Pistachios add a crunchy texture to the soft and creamy filling.
  • Egg wash: You’ll brush this over your pastry before baking to get that gorgeous, golden sheen on the crust.

Be Smart With Serving the Galettes

When serving up these delightful Goat Cheese Apricot Galettes, you’ve got options galore that’ll fit just about any meal or mood. Here are some of my favorite ways to serve these yummy goat cheese galettes:

As an Appetizer

You can kick off your gathering with these galettes served mini-style. Just roll out the dough a tad thinner and cut it into smaller circles before adding your toppings. Serve them warm, right out of the oven for that irresistible cheese pull.

As a Main Course

Want a light yet fulfilling dinner? Serve these galettes as the star of the show. Pair each galette with a fresh green salad tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette or a side of steamed vegetables. This way, the creamy goat cheese, and the tart-sweet apricots get to really shine. Serve them warm, slightly above room temperature, to keep the crust flaky and the cheese beautifully melty.

As a Dessert

Yes, these galettes can even double as a dessert. Consider drizzling a bit of honey over the top before serving and maybe a sprinkle of crushed pistachios for an extra touch of elegance. Serve them slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to meld with the fruity, tangy notes of the apricots.

Tips to Bake the Perfect Apricot Goat Cheese Galettes

Nailing the perfect Goat Cheese Apricot Galette also means mastering a few hacks. Here are some straightforward tips that will make your galettes a hit:

Working with Puff pastry

Allow your puff pastry to defrost. You can either allow it to defrost overnight in the refrigerator, or let it come to room temperature on the counter.

Choosing the Right Cheese

While goat cheese is the star of this recipe, you can also experiment with different cheeses based on your taste or what’s available. Ricotta or feta can offer a nice twist.

Balancing the Filling

Avoid overloading your galette with too much filling, as this will result in a soggy crust. About a half cup of cheese and a handful of apricots per galette should suffice.

Baking to Perfection

Bake your galette until the edges are golden and crispy, typically 25 to 30 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The high heat helps the crust set quickly, capturing all the moisture and flavors of your filling.

What You Might Ask

Can I use frozen apricots instead of fresh ones?

Yes, frozen apricots work well if fresh ones aren’t available. You should thaw and drain them properly to remove excess moisture that could soggy the crust.

What are some quick hacks to add a flavor twist to my galettes?

Try brushing the crust with a bit of apricot jam before baking for an extra pop of flavor. Adding a sprinkle of fresh thyme or rosemary to the goat cheese can also bring a lovely aroma to the dish.

Can I make these galettes gluten-free?

Yes, you can easily swap the regular flour for any gluten-free flour blend designed for baking. Just keep an eye on the texture of the dough and add a bit more water if it seems too dry.
