Cherry Jam & Almond Galettes


These Cherry Jam and Almond Galettes are a perfect quick and easy sweet treat. I use ready-made puff pastry when I make these tasty tarts. Using ready-made pastry cuts down on the preparation time. Nutty frangipane provides richness and texture.

To make these galettes, take some ready-made puff pastry and cut it into circles for the pastry base. Make a nutty frangipane from ground almonds and add a jam and cherry filling to the frangipane and bake. Cool for a few minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream. Yum!

To make Cherry Jam and Almond Galettes, you will need the following ingredients:

Ingridiens for Cherry Jam & Almond Galettes

Steps to make Cherry Jam & Almond Galettes


Preheat the oven


Preheat the oven to 390 °F.


Cut out pastry circles


Using a rolling pin, roll out the pastry to ¼-inch thick. Cut out 4 pastry circles, each about 5½ inches in diameter. Freeze the unused pastry to use another day. Score a border ¾ inch from the edge of the pastry. Place the pastry discs on a non-stick baking sheet and brush with beaten egg.


Bake pastry circles


Bake the pastry circles for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and gently press the middles down so you have a pastry shell. Leave to cool.


Make the frangipane


Beat 70 grams of butter and 70 grams of sugar until pale. Add 2 eggs to the mixture one at a time. Beat in ½ a teaspoon of vanilla, 70 grams of ground almonds and 20 grams of flour. Mix well.


Add the frangipane to the pastry


Spoon the frangipane mixture onto the pastry shells.


Make filling


Mix 4 tablespoons of cherry jam and 200 grams of pitted cherries and spoon the mixture over the frangipane.




Bake for 15 more minutes until the pastry is golden and the frangipane sets and is light golden.




Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes.



Serve these delicious galettes with vanilla ice cream.

Lovely dessert my son ate all of them with chocolate icecream instead of vanilla (- :

Careful on the vanilla extract too much ruins the taste and makes it chemical like.

Vegetarian galettes are the BOMB!!!

I made my own dough from this website too and used it instead of store bought its way cheaper to make and fun too if you have some extra time i'd say make the dough and then these.

Will be making these again but this time with some blueberries i found the cherries to be too bitter and sour when left to cook for a long period of time.

I've been on a cherry spree since yesterday, I made the cherry chewblies and now freaking good.

Strawberry jam taste better than cherry if you like super sweet things.

Awesome cherry jam cookies mine were soft on the inside and a bit harder on the outside.
