Wow Your Dinner Guests With This Apricot-Thyme Galette

We love adding herbs to desserts just to throw a little excitement into the typical sweetness—and this apricot-thyme galette is no exception. This pastry of this free-form tart gets some extra crispiness from cornmeal, while the filling of fresh apricots swimming in preserves remains delightfully gooey.  

Apricot-Thyme Galette

Yield: 10-inch tart
Active Time:

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
1/2 cup stoneground cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, cubed
1 heaping tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

1/2 cup apricot preserves or jam
10 to 12 apricots, pits removed and cut in half
2 tablespoons sugar
Zest of 1/2 lemon
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons almonds, roughly chopped

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade attachment, place flour, cornmeal, salt, and sugar. Pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse sand.

Add thyme and 2 tablespoons water. Pulse, adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the mixture comes together as a dough. Form into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

On a floured countertop, roll out the dough to a 12-inch round and transfer to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Leaving a 2-inch border around edges, spread a layer of apricot jam on dough. Arrange cut apricot slices over jam and sprinkle with sugar and lemon zest.
