  • 500g puff pastry
  • Plain flour, for rolling
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 4 tbsp pressed apple juice
  • 3 Waitrose Duchy Organic Pears, quartered, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp pure clear honey
  • 3 tbsp apricot jam
  • 2 tbsp toasted flaked almonds
  • Cream, to serve (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Roll out the pastry onto a lightly floured work surface and cut out 6 circles, 12cm in diameter and about 0.4cm thick. Transfer to a large nonstick baking tray.

  2. Mix the ground almonds together with the apple juice, then spread over the pastry circles to within 1cm of the edges.

  3. Arrange the pear over the almond mixture. Gently heat the honey, brush it over the pears, then bake for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown.

  4. Heat the apricot jam until bubbling. Allow to cool slightly, then sieve to remove the apricot pieces. Brush over the warm galettes to glaze. Scatter with the flaked almonds and serve warm with cream, if liked
