We were recently in Hawaii and the fresh tropical fruit options were endless!! Our friends have this amazing mango tree that just happened to be raining ripe mangos when we were there. Of course, I had to make some sort of dessert (and drink😬🍹) with these amazing fruits.

Galettes are meant to be rustic. Don’t worry about the shape or perfect folds, etc. It will taste amazing no matter what. And it’s fun to put together, you could definitely make this with kids!

If you are curious about the mango drink I made, it was a Fresh Mango Margarita! I pureed some of the super-ripe mangoes in a blender to create a puree. Then I blended the puree with tequila, triple sec, lime juice, lemon juice, and ice. Delicious!

What is a Galette?

Galettes are a great pastry dessert option because they are fairly easy to make, they don’t have to be perfectly assembled and they still turn out amazing. Galette is a French term that describes different types of pastries that are flat and in a round or rectangle shape. They are free-form, have a sweet or savory filling in the middle, and a crust that is folded over the edges. Galettes are cooked on a baking sheet rather than in a pie pan.

Ingredients Needed to Make a Mango Galette

  • homemade or store-bought crust (see below)
  • fresh mango, peeled and cubed
  • sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • lime zest

Homemade or Store-Bought Crust?

This Fresh Mango Galette recipe includes a homemade crust but you could also use store-bought. If you make your own dough, it has to be refrigerated at least an hour before assembly, so keep that in mind before you get started. If you use a store-bought crust, don’t forget to brush it with egg and sprinkle it with brown sugar. You will need the following ingredients to make your own crust:

  • all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • sugar
  • unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • ice water
  • egg
  • brown sugar

How to Make a Homemade Galette Crust

Place the flour, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add cold butter pieces and ice water a little at a time and combine with a pastry cutter, food processor, or your hands until you have a nice crumbly mixture. TIP: If you use your hands, wash them with cold water first so they don’t melt the butter.

Pat the dough into a ball and place it on a piece of plastic wrap. Press dough into a flat disc and wrap it tightly with the plastic wrap. Place the dough in the refrigerator for at least an hour so it’s nice and firm and cold. You can also make this a day or two ahead of time.

How to Assemble and Bake a Mango Galette

  1. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 375ºF. Put all of the filling ingredients in a large mixing bowl and gently stir to combine.
  2. Place the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. Start in the middle and work out and get to the desired thickness and size (about 1/4′ thick and 10-12″ in diameter).
  3. Place the rolled-out dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently spoon the mango filling in the middle, leaving 1-2″ of dough all around the edges.
  4. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling all the way around. Don’t worry about being perfect or even, just make sure all the filling stays put.
  5. Whisk the egg and brush it on the outside crust. Sprinkle the egg wash generously with brown sugar.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown.

  • Place the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. Start in the middle and work out and get to the desired thickness and size (about 1/4' thick and 10-12" in diameter). Be careful not to stretch the dough. You just need a rough circle or rectangle so don't be too picky. Remember, galettes are "rustic"!

  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. I enjoy a slightly burnt sugar crust but you can pull the galette out before the sugar it gets too dark. Allow the galette to cool before serving, but this is best served warm. Enjoy!
