This dish is inspired by my close girlfriend Kai, a powerful musician who channels sound from higher realms. In “Kailand”, the ultimate delight is a juicy pear.
- 3 Bartlett pears, red and green, sliced thin
- 1/3 cup Cocojune brand yogurt, plain
- 1 tbsp orange marmalade
- 1 tbsp Melt Organic Butter
- 1 sprig sprig thyme
- 2 1/2 cups Flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp Melt Organic™ vegan butter
- 1/2 cup organic sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 4-5 tbsp ice water
Prepare Galette Dough
- Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with pastry blender or clean, cold hands until incorporated. Add 4 tablespoons ice water and combine; Add additional water in small increments as needed to form an even, soft (but not sticky) ball of dough. Wrap in parchment and allow to rest in refrigerator 2 hours (30 minutes minimum).
Make Pear Filling
- Preheat oven to 375℉. Allow dough to come to temperature on a floured surface (about 20 minutes). Once dough is warm enough to work, roll out in a rough ¼ inch-thick circle.
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together Cocojune yogurt and marmalade to create filling. Spoon over rolled dough, starting in the center and spreading evenly outward towards the edges, leaving a two-finger sized margin around the edge to allow for folding in.
- Arrange pear slices in alternating colors in a circular pattern from the center of galette dough outward.
- Fold dough around edges to create crust. Fold in remaining dough and pinch dough together every inch (give or take) to form a crust and contain filling during baking.
- Brush pears with melted butter and sprinkle with finishing salt. Bake 25 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven, allow to cool 10 minutes and dust with powdered sugar.
- Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs and serve with your favorite coffee or tea!
This dish is inspired by my close girlfriend Kai, a powerful musician who channels sound from higher realms. In “Kailand”, the ultimate delight is a juicy pear, so I created this dish mostly to make her smile and hopefully receive a selfie of her wearing it as a crown (because that’s so her)!
