To qualify as a true Indian Summer we should have had warmer temperatures and well … sun. September was instead cold and rainy but this weekend it (finally) was sunny with big blue skies and the sun turned everything gold. The leaves are starting to fall but there is still lots of green around and i craved getting some air in the Bois. The transition from summer to fall to me is somehow synonymous with deep purples and pinks. And i simply love all the great fruit that comes in season, like plums.
I saw these plums and had to make little galettes, easy to take on a pic-nic in the Bois.
need: 2cups of sliced and pitted plums, 2 tblsp of sugar, lemon zest, 1/2 tblsp of cinnamon, 4 tblsp of ground almonds, a pie crust (i used puff pastry), 1 egg
go: toss the plums in a bowl with the sugar, lemon zest, cinnamon and ground almonds. Unroll the pre-made (store bought) pie-crust and for smaller galettes cut in 4. Pile the plum mixture in the middle of the pie crust leaving 2 cm all the way around. fold the pie crust over the plums, brush with egg wash and sprinkle some sugar over it, than bake for approximately 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 200C .
