Goat Cheese & Fig Galette

Goat Cheese & Fig Galette, with honey


Those of you that follow At Home with Vicki Bensinger know that I’m all about making things easy these days.

I love cooking but when you’re running all over the place all day long, easy is what I need when it comes to making meals. The same holds true if I have the desire to have dessert. 

Honestly if it’s just me I’m not going to make a dessert.  I have to be creating it for someone else or a group.  Heaven forbid I’d indulge in my creations solo, I need to share the calories with others and watch them enjoy it as well.

I actually made my Goat Cheese & Fig Galette several weeks ago, but sometimes life gets in the way and blogging has to take a back seat.  Even though my Goat Cheese & Fig Galette is a bit late getting posted, figs are still widely available for purchase at the market.

I saw these figs at the farmers market a few weeks back and couldn’t resist them.  I knew I had some ready-made pie crust in the refrigerator at home so was confident I could create a luscious dessert.  Then of course when I saw the farmers market goat cheese at another stand, and raw honey, I had my mind made up.

With these four ingredients I created a Goat Cheese & Fig Galette that was so flavorful it was hard to stop eating it.

Lately I’ve had a thing about galettes, and making them in a cast iron skillet.  I’m not sure what that’s about, but sometimes we just get fixated on something and just can’t let go. I seem to be a master at that.

Anyway, if you’re a fan of figs I think you’ll enjoy this galette.  If you prefer to do smaller portions then use a 6-inch cast iron skillet vs. a 10-inch one.  Or create these in ramekins or even muffin tins for small individual servings.

No matter how you slice it, I’m certain you’ll love my Goat Cheese & Fig Galette!
