FALLING FOR FALL
Fig Plum Galette is the quintessential recipe for fall. Have you tried making a galette? I use to think it a galette was intimidating, but it’s super easy! Now, I have a nice collection of Galette recipes here on the blog.
All you’ll need for my Easy Fig and Plum Galette dessert recipe is plums, or any kind of stone fruit, fresh figs, honey, lemon juice, pumpkin spice, and puff pastry. Our farm had plums and Dalmassine plums in stock so I grabbed two baskets and used both for this scrumptious galette.
Did you know that A Dalmassine Plum is also known as an Italian plum? Pretty fitting for this blog I’d say. I also used common figs and tiger figs for this recipe.
Figs are luscious and taste delicious paired with plums in a galette dessert. You can use any stone fruit you have on hand.
A DESSERT LOW IN REFINED SUGAR, BUT STILL JUST AS TASTY
You can make the dough from scratch if that’s your jam, but when I’m making a quick dessert for guests coming over, I want quick and easy, but still healthy. We still have loads of plums and figs on our farm right now so when I saw the figs I knew I had to make a fall galette recipe.
What I love about this fig plum galette recipe is how simple it is to make and how it’s low in refined sugar. I opted for honey instead of refined sugar and it turned out sinfully delicious! You could even have this easy dessert for breakfast and pair it with a yummy pumpkin spice latte or dark roast coffee. Whichever you eat it, I’m sure it will be a staple dessert at all of your upcoming fall family functions.
I’m so happy we are nearing fall, but I’m also longing to start summer over again. Summer, next to fall, is my favorite season and I haven’t had one day on the lake yet.
Hmmm…. this weekend is a definite must-do kayaking weekend. We have not even pulled our kayaks out of the garage this summer.
FALL REMINDS US OF HOW EASY IT IS TO LET THINGS GO
There is a crisp, autumn feeling in the air that I do adore. I notice the leaves changing and starting to fall during my afternoon trail runs.
It must be the Libra in me, but September is always my month to purge and release what is no longer needed. I think a good annual clean-up is healthy and satisfying. I must admit, I do feel that over the last few months, I’ve collected too much stuff.
I’m excited to clean out my food prop shelves, clean out the photo studio, the hard drives, my kitchen, closets, the garage, all of it. I find that releasing stuff at the beginning of a new season helps me shed layers I no longer need anymore. Mentally, physically, and most importantly; spiritually.
RUNNING INTO FALL FULL-SPEED AHEAD
Bloggers and content creators are always thinking 3-months in advance, much like retail stores. Lately. I’ve been consistently feeling like I’m playing catch-up. I think it’s because Spring and Summer blended like a milkshake, and I’m honestly wondering where did the time go?
I’m looking forward to Fall and everything this magical season has to offer. I’m excited to release stuff, run on the trails in cooler weather, hiking, fishing, and running some fun virtual pumpkin races!
I’m excited about all of the baking that goes along with the Fall season and I may just make this delicious plum galette this weekend.
Pumpkin iced coffee and a slice of my fig plum galette? Sounds like the perfect afternoon.

- 1-package puff pastry
- 1-cup common figs cut into quarters
- 1/2-cup tiger figs cut into quarters
- 1/2-pound plums cut into halves
- 1-cup Dalmassine plums, cut into halves
- 1-cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4-cup melted butter
- 1-cup raw honey
- 1-teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-teaspoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
- 1/3-cup melted butter for the crust
- Preheat oven to 375-degrees
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Prep the puff pastry according to package directions.
- Roll out the thawed puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface.
- Move the prepared pastry dough to the lined baking sheet and chill in the freezer for a few minutes while you prep the fruit mixture.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add the figs and plums, toss the fruit to combine.
- Add the lemon juice, melted butter, raw honey, vanilla extract, and arrowroot powder, and gently toss everything together to combine.
- Remove the prepared baking sheet with the prepared dough from the freezer.
- Arrange the fruit in the center of the chilled dough, spreading evenly. Leave a 3-4″ inch border.
- Fold edges of the dough up and over part of the fruit, pleating as needed, and being careful that the folded edge of dough doesn’t tear.
- If the dough tears, simply patch with extra dough or fold over.
- Brush melted butter over the edges of the dough and sprinkle the galette with pumpkin spice.
- Place the prepared galette in the oven and bake at 375-degrees for 25-minutes, then rotate halfway through and bake for another 20-minutes, or until the edges of the crust are golden brown.
- Let the Fig Plum Galette cool for 1-hour and serve with vanilla ice cream.
Galettes are supposed to be easy. Don’t stress if the folds of the crust do not line up or if the crust breaks. Simply add more fruit, or fix any holes with extra dough. The messier a Galette is, the better it tastes!
