Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 25-30 Minutes
Yield: Serves 2-4
1 prepared puff pastry sheet at room temperature
¼ cup honey, plus 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon white truffle oil
2 ripe Bartlett pears (about 10 ounces) cut into ¼-inch thick slices
2 shallots (about 5 ounces) thinly sliced
4 ounces diced pancetta
½ pound Brie, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon water
¼ cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano or Pecorino cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Add honey and truffle oil to a small bowl. Use a fork to combine. Place aside.
Add pancetta to a room temperature skillet. Bring to low-medium heat and sauté for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil and shallots. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté 5 minutes. Bring skillet to medium heat. Add sliced pear and 1 tablespoon honey. Sauté for 10 minutes. Place mixture aside in a bowl.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a floured surface, gently roll out pastry sheet to a circle about 13 inches wide. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. This doesn’t have to be a perfect circle - galettes are most beautifully prepared rustically!
Leaving a 1 ½-inch border around the pastry sheet, spread brie evenly over the dough, breaking some slices apart if necessary to cover entire surface. Drizzle with ¼ of the truffle honey. Arrange the sautéed pancetta, shallots, and pears evenly on top. Drizzle with remaining honey. Don’t be afraid to drizzle some over the border, as well.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Fold the edge of the dough up and over filling. Brush border with egg wash.
Sprinkle border with grated cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes, until crust is golden and filling is bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature.
