Mini Pear Galettes with Kodiak Cakes

Mini Pear Galettes with Kodiak Cakes

It’s the holidays and we’re starting to receive delightful work/family/friend gifts. It’s so amazing and we’re grateful for all the amazing, thoughtful presents! We were recently gifted a beautiful gift basket from Harry & David that included super tasty treats! Cheeses and crackers and some BEAUTIFUL pears!

At first, I thought there were only two pears, but then I looked under the box stuffing and OMG THERE WERE 8 PEARS! What do you do with that many pears?! 🙂

So, I looked for something delicious to make and found this tasty-looking Kodiak Cakes recipe! Of course, I have some yummy Kodiak Cakes mix in the closet (SUCH GOOD WAFFLES!), so I adjusted the recipe to include pears and voila!

These Mini Pear Galettes are perfect as an evening dessert (topped with ice cream) or warmed up as a sweet breakfast treat!

Ingredients
  • Filling:
  • 4 pears
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • ½ t ground cinnamon
  • ½ t ground ginger
  • Pie Crusts:
  • 3 C Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Flapjack and Waffle Mix
  • 1-1/2 C cold, unsalted, grass-fed butter
  • About 12-14 T ice water
  • Egg Wash:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t water
  • sugar for garnish
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix Kodiak Cake mix and cold butter, cut into small pieces.
  2. Mix until butter is about the size of peas.
  3. Make a well in the center, add the cold water and combine enough so the dough sticks together.
  4. Form into a ball and set aside on the counter to come to room temperature.
  5. Prepare a large baking sheet, lined with parchment paper and preheat the over to 350 F.
  6. Thinly (I mean thin!) slice the pears long ways (discarding seeds and stems).
  7. In a large bowl, lightly mix the pears with sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and ginger.
  8. Divide your dough into 4 even dough balls.
  9. On a floured surface, roll each dough ball out to approximately ½" thickness.
  10. If you want even circle galettes, use a bowl like a cookie cutter and shape your circle out of the dough.
  11. Repeat with the remaining crusts.
  12. Transfer each crust to your pans.
  13. Place the pears in even/zigzag lines on the center of each crust, leaving the edges empty.
  14. Bring the edges up over part of the fruit filling, overlapping if necessary. Press together areas where crust overlaps.
  15. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water.
  16. Coat each crust with the egg mix with a pastry brush.
  17. Sprinkle with additional sugar both on crusts and on top of fruit mixture.
  18. Bake galettes in oven for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  19. Enjoy warm or cooled!
