Pineapple & Persimmon Galette

The weather was quite freaky these few days! Bright and sunny in one minute, then comes the rain for a few minutes.... bright again..... follow by thunder.... bommm...zz....zz.... the sky became dark for the whole evening, NO RAIN! I think our mother nature is having a flu? Remember the tornado strikes Yazo City (US) a couple of days ago? Scary, isn't it? I wonder are there any of our blogger friends were involved! Hopefully none! May God bless you all!

I'm going to have something light today. A little tropical touch!

Ingredients for Pastry Crust :

2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tspn sugar
1 tspn salt
226gm butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup ice water

Method :

- combine flour, sugar & salt, then rub in butter untll well combined.
- slowly stir in ice water untill the dough just holds together.
- wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for an hour.

Fillings :

2 large persimmons, sliced
1 canned pineapple (I used fresh fruit)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tspn lemon juice
1-1/2 tbsp flour
1/2 tpsn salt

Method :

- combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.



TO ASSEMBLE :

- place chilled dough between 2 plastic sheets and then roll flat, roughly about 10x14" to fit into a 9x10" tray or any other size tray as desire.
- arrange all the sliced fruits onto dough and then fold the edges.
- bake at 200'c for about 30-40 mins or untill brown.
- you may also brush the outer crust with egg glaze (optional).

What else after that! Serve the pastry while it's still warm. Remember, the sugar & salt in the filling is adjustable. Enjoy!

Hi Kristy =] Thanks for visiting my blog too!

We had weather like that last week...I think. I just remember being freexing cold one moment and the next, having to take off my billion layers of clothing =]

I love persimmons- but I've never used them in baking! But it sounds delicious, especially paired with pineapple =]

Angie's Recipes said...

This looks very yummy with fresh fruit...and I would possibly just use persimmons as I am a huge fan of it.

Belinda @zomppa said...

How pretty! I've never used persimmons either - never would have thought to pair them. Always learn so much from you.

penny aka jeroxie said...

I have not had persimmons for awhile. The ones here... they are not the same.

My Little Space said...

Von : Hi there, welcome to my humble little space. Hope to hear from you more often.

Angie : The cooked persimmons tasted awesome!

Belinda : I love them both...they tasted really good after cooked!

Penny : I prefer the Korean one!

Thanks for stopping by, ladies! Hope you had a great time!

Cheers, Kristy

Lyndsey said...

That a combination I wouldn't have thught of, i bet it goes well together. I like how your crust looks rustic! I would love a piece right now...as long as it's still warm...:)

We've had beautiful weather, actually a little dry...hoping for rain, but no tornadoes!

Stay warm and dry, cheers!

petite nyonya said...

Hi Kristy, the weather is the same up here in KL! Ah, this galette looks good with the combination of both fruits which I like. I've never made galette before...must try one day. So many things to try lah. Sometimes not much time to even cook dinner. LOL! Been a bit busy these few weeks.

Chow and Chatter said...

oh wow this looks wonderful great fruits, hope you weather settles down, thanks for the kind comment on the header Diana from a Little bit of Spain in Iowa did it

Heavenly Housewife said...

Beautifully done. Now that the weather is getting nice, something like this would be perfect (but I don't actually care, I'd eat that gallette in the snow LOL).
*kisses* HH

smallkucing said...

I love persimon..looks delicious

Jeannie said...

Love all those pastries that you've made. This is no acception..2 of my favourite fruits too! Been raining every evening just when it's time to head home! Like the highways are not jammed enough without the rain to add to the chaos!

the lacquer spoon said...

I rarely saw persimon used for puds, but your cake looks excellent! Hope the weather will be settled soon :)

Mary said...

What a lovely dessert. I'm trying to imagine how the pineapple and persimmon taste together. I wager this is wonderful. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Kumi said...

Yum!! I LOVE persimmons but never thought of using then in a recipe like this!! I'll have to keep this recipe in mind for this fall...

My Little Space said...

Lynd : I think I should have slice the persimmons a little thinner. Taste even better!

Joslyn : Poor thing! So, eating out again lol!

REbecca : Oh I see! She did a good job then.

HH : haha... you're so funny! I'll do the same though. hehehe... Nothing can get into our way, right!

Cheah said...

I've never tried baking with persimmons, looks good.

Barbara said...

Fascinating combo of fruit, Kristy! I've baked with persimmons but never combined them with another fruit. I love the look of this tart...it was especially pretty even before you baked it! A little ice cream on top, perhaps?

Oh that looks so pretty! I love persimmons.

Melissa Peterman said...

Great photography- absolutely mouthwatering dish! Thanks for sharing.

Claudia said...

What a sweet fruity delectable. I never think to use persimmons. I feel so boring. Your pastry is just scrumptious. Weather can be very scary - and something we cannot tame!

comfycook said...

Such interesting ingredients. You are talented.

Alice Law said...

Interesting... it really gave me a tropical taste! Just wonder how does it really taste?

Have a nice day!

Kristy
