Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, frozen
  • 1/4 cup ice water

Filling:

  • 5 oz goat cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons good quality honey, plus extra for serving
  • 6-7 fresh figs, quartered (about 1 1/2 cups sliced figs)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons demerara sugar
  • Fresh thyme leaves, for garnish

Instructions: 

Make the dough:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar with a fork or whisk. Grate the frozen butter into the flour mixture using a box grater, and work it into coarse crumbs using your fingers.
  2. Add ice water gradually, using a fork to incorporate it into the dough. The dough should have visible bits of butter and remain slightly shaggy. Do not overwork it.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, bring it together into a ball, and wrap it in plastic wrap. Form it into a disk and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight.

Make the galette:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Roll the dough into a 10-inch disk, about 1/4-inch thick, on a sheet of parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, cream the goat cheese and 2 tablespoons of honey with a fork until smooth. Spread this mixture in the center of the dough, leaving a 2-inch perimeter.
  4. Arrange the figs on top of the goat cheese, then fold the edges of the dough up and around the figs, pleating as you go.
  5. Whisk together the egg and water. Lightly brush the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle demerara sugar over it.
  6. Transfer the galette with the parchment paper onto a heavy baking sheet.
  7. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until the crust turns golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven, drizzle the figs with the remaining honey, and sprinkle fresh thyme leaves over the galette. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and savoring it while warm.
