Enjoy the perfect blend of sweet figs and honey in this delectable galette. The flaky pastry crust perfectly complements the soft and juicy figs, while the drizzle of honey adds a touch of natural sweetness. This galette is perfect for a cozy dessert or a brunch treat. It's easy to make and guaranteed to impress your family and friends.


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 5-6 tablespoons ice water
  • 6-8 fresh figs, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter and mix with a pastry cutter or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough starts to come together.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and shape it into a ball. Flatten the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the honey and cornstarch until well combined.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough into a rough circle, about 12 inches in diameter.
  7. Transfer the rolled dough onto the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Spread the honey and cornstarch mixture evenly over the center of the dough, leaving a border of about 2 inches.
  9. Arrange the sliced figs on top of the honey mixture.
  10. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, pleating as necessary.
  11. Brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the figs are soft and juicy.
  13. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  14. Drizzle with additional honey before serving.
  15. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
