Galette des rois recipe
Ingredients (serves 8) :
-2 all-butter puff pastry rolls
-125g ground almonds
-125g caster sugar
-125g softened butter
-1 egg yolk (beaten) to glaze
-1 tbsp rum
-1 “feve” (figurine)
Pre-heat the oven to 220°C. Beat the softened butter and sugar into a smooth creamy consistency. Add the ground almonds, 2 eggs and the rum. Mix thoroughly. For the pastry, roll out the first sheet and using a dinner plate, cut out a 20cm round for the base and place on a baking tray. Next, spoon the almond mixture onto the centre of the sheet and spread evenly across the pastry leaving a 2cm margin around the edge. Add the all-important “feve”. Repeat with the second sheet to make a lid and place on top of the almond cream, sealing the edges with your fingertips. Press with a fork to neaten the edges. Using a pastry brush, glaze the surface with the egg yolk slightly diluted in a small quantity of cold water. Score a swirling pattern on the surface with a knife and prick the pastry to allow it to breathe. Bake the galette for approx. 20 minutes until golden brown.
