Simple Quince Galette



To make Galette Crust:

  • 1¼ cups flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cold butter
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ tsp. maple flavoring
  • To cook quince:
  • 3 large quinces, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 ½ cups water
  • ½ vanilla bean, halved and scraped


  1. Mix dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until pea-sized crumbs. Mix in buttermilk and flavoring until combined. Chill for at least a half hour. Remove from the refrigerator and roll into a circle on a lightly floured surface
  2. Bring quince ingredients to a simmer on low heat and cook just long enough to soften. Pour off water and cool.
  3. Layer quince on top of the galette circle. Drizzle with a 1/3 c. maple syrup and fold edges over. Brush with an egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 T. of milk). Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
