A lovely Galette des Rois recipe

0 Replies



Happy New Year to one and all - I love making these and giving them away at this time of the year.You need: two lots of puff pastry (good, bought is fine); 150g soft butter; 150g icing sugar; 150g ground almonds; two large eggs; one large egg yolk; 1 Tbs of dark rum.You do: Heat overnto 108°C; mix butter and icing sugar to a cream; add ground almonds, eggs and egg yolk and rum.Place one disc of pastry on a baking tray; spoon almond cream onto the pastry and smooth out; leave a border all around. Hide the fève (you can buy these from your local bakery if you ask nicely :) and cover with the second disc of pastry. Press the edges to seal and score with a knife. Score the top of the galette with a semi-circular movement with the back of a knife to make it look pretty. Put into the fridge for at least 10 minutes to set.Bake for 35-45 minutes until golden brown. Serve with cider or champagne. (Coffee or tea will also do)The lucky person that finds the fève is king or queen for the day!
