I hope you’re ready for some pictures. Like, a lot of them. I went a little overboard on this one and just cannot scale back on the number of pictures in this post.

Here’s my problem.

My stomach is seriously doing somersaults just remembering how freaking delicious this was.

Plum Pecan Galette. I’ve waited for you my entire life.

I can hardly control myself right now.

So remember how I told you about my fear of pie? Well, for those of you who don’t know (or remember), I am terrified of making pie crust. I have no idea why, but I just can’t seem to make the effort to try it out.

People just keep telling me that I need to get the butter at just the right temperature and I’m really just not a just the right temperature type of person. I need recipes that give me a little more wiggle room to mess up or forget steps.

Which is why I’ve developed a fantastic and questionable love for refrigerated pie crust. I mean, seriously, why would anyone try to make this stuff themselves? It’s already pre-made and totally perfect. Just LOOK at that flaky, buttery, golden-brown crust. I think I’m going to have to make another one of these tonight.

For those who aren’t familiar with the amazing galette, let me introduce you. It’s essentially a rustic free-form pie/tart thing that is made using pie crust and whatever awesome food you have lying around your house.

In my case, it was plums and pecans. I got lucky, because the combination of these two ingredients is da bomb (that’s right, I’m bringing back “da bomb”).

Making this with refrigerated pie crust is just about the easiest thing ever, as all you do is lay out the crust, place the filling ingredients in the center, then fold up the edges and make it pretty (I think people call this fluting?) before baking it in the oven.

It comes out bubbly and amazing and it will disappear before your very eyes.

This Plum and Pecan Galette recipe only takes 30 minutes to make this impressive, delicious dessert.

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 half of a box refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box (or, you know, use your grandmother's recipe or whatever)
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 5 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 c. cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans
  • 2 Tbsp. fig jam (or any other type of jam)
  • 2 c. pitted and thinly sliced plums (French prune style is best)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 c. pecan halves

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. and unroll your pie crust on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Use a pastry blender or fork to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup of the chopped pecans.
  3. Spread the jam over the unrolled pie crust, leaving a one-inch border around the edge. Top with half of the crumb mixture.
  4. Toss the plums with the vanilla extract, then arrange the slices on top of the pie crust, continuing to leave a one-inch margin around the edge.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture. Top with pecan halves. Fold in pie crust edge to form the border, overlapping as you go.
  6. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool 30 minutes.
