Apple and pear galette is a great Summer dessert! A rustic dessert, full of flavor, with a flaky buttery crust, and is easy to make. There is no kneading involved here the only time-consuming step is waiting for the dough to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour.
If you love galette, I think my Apple Galette with Caramel Sauce will win your heart.
More about galette
You can find sweet and savory galette recipes; it is an open pie, you can fill it with any regular pie filling, but keep in mind that a lot of gravy or sauce in the filling will ruin it and make the pie crust soggy and tasteless.
Apple and pear galette
The combination of apple and pear is amazing; after baking the galette, the apples will get tender and sweet, while the pear will have a little bite to it. You can use the apples you prefer for this recipe but in case of using Granny Smith apples then add one more tablespoon of sugar to the filling.
Can I use Whole Wheat flour for the crust?
If you want to add whole wheat flour, cut the flour measurement to half whole wheat flour and the other half with all purpose flour. The butter flavors the crust better when it is made of all-purpose flour only.
You have to add one to two more tablespoon of chilled water to the dough when you are using whole wheat flour.

How to serve apple pear galette?
I like to enjoy galette topped with cream, but ice cream and sometimes butter honey syrup compliment the taste of this delicate apple pear galette. Serve the galette at room temperature or a little warm when serving it with ice cream.
How to store the galette?
To maintain the flavor and the texture of the crust, wrap the galette in a plastic wrap and then place it in an airtight container, and you can refrigerate it for four to five days.
