Individual Plum and Almond Galettes
In a food processor, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, butter, 1 teaspoon sugar, and salt; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 1/4 cup remaining ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time). Don't overmix. Remove dough from processor and shape into a disk; wrap in plastic and refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, wipe bowl of food processor clean and add almonds, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons flour; pulse until ground to a coarse meal.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet; sprinkle almond mixture over dough. With a spatula, transfer plums to dough; press lightly to fan out, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold edge of dough over fruit. Refrigerate 20 minutes. Brush crust with lightly beaten egg; sprinkle galette with 2 tablespoons sanding sugar. Bake until crust is golden and underside is cooked through, about 70 minutes.
To make 6 individual galettes, in step 1, shape dough into two discs and wrap in plastic. Roll each into a rectangle 6 by 18 inches. Cut into 6" squares. Divide filling evenly among galettes and fold edges up to seal. Transfer to two parchment lined sheet pans. Chill galettes 15 minutes, then bake at 375 for about 40 minutes.
