Ingredients

Nashi galette
  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 3 (600g) nashi
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime rind
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) lime juice
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 30 gram butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Method

Nashi galette
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced). Grease two oven trays.
  • 2
    Cut pastry sheets in half. Place two halves on each oven tray. Fold in long sides of each pastry piece about 2cm; press folded sections lightly then turn short ends in, making three small folds in each.
  • 3
    Cut whole unpeeled nashi into 1cm slices. Discard small end slices; you need 16 similar- size nashi rounds for this recipe.
  • 4
    Stir rind, juice, the water and caster sugar in large heavy-based frying pan over high heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil. Add nashi to syrup, in batches if necessary; cook over low heat about 10 minutes or until just tender. Remove nashi from syrup with a slotted spoon. Cool slightly. Reserve syrup in pan.
  • 5
    Place nashi slices on pastry pieces. Brush with combined melted butter and brown sugar.
  • 6
    Bake galette about 20 minutes or until browned lightly.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, boil reserved syrup about 10 minutes or until reduced to a thick glaze. Brush hot galettes with glaze.
