Autumn in its gloious splendor + delicious galette con higos

Today some nice pictures from our last weekend getaway and another recipe with figs. The season of figs is slowly fading away and my husband wonders already now, how I would be able to beat all the dishes I have been preparing lately with figs in the future. I have to admit, it took me several years to get him to appreciate this delicious and exotic fruit, full with iron, kalium and calcium... Figs are the fruit of my childhood and will always have a special place in my heart and my kitchen.

Galette con higos
  • 100 g flour
  • 60 g butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of sat
  • 1 egg
Preheat the oven to 180C. Add all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz till a ball of dough has been form, if the dough is to sticky, add some additional flour, if it is too dry add some cold water (spoon wise). Take the down out and roll it with your hands to a circle (ca. 20 cm). 
  • fresh figs
  • vanilla sugar
  • brown sugar
Wash the figs, tap them dry and quarter them. Spread them on the top of the shortcrust dough, leaving an edge of 2-3 cm, which you will lap over the fruits later. Sprinkle vanilla sugar and brown sugar over the top and bake for ca. 20 min. till golden brown. Serve with a dollop of unsweetened Greek yogurt.
