4 galettes


  • 2 ounce tub-style light cream cheese spread

  • 2 tablespoon refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 1 egg yolk

  • 2 tablespoon low-sugar orange marmalade

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 recipe Browned Butter Pastry

  • 4 medium plums, pitted and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 2 tablespoon almonds or walnuts, chopped

  • Fat-free milk

  • 4 teaspoon honey

Browned Butter Pastry

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar or sugar substitute blend* equivalent to 1 tablespoon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoon shortening

  • 2 tablespoon cold water


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. In a medium bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed. Beat in egg product or egg yolk, orange marmalade, and ginger.

  2. Prepare Browned Butter Pastry. Divide pastry dough into four portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough portion to a 7-inch circle. Spread each portion with one-fourth of the cream cheese mixture, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with plum slices and almonds. Fold border up over filling, pleating pastry as necessary to fit. Place galettes on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops and sides of crust with milk.

  3. Bake about 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Serve warm or cool. Drizzle with honey.

Browned Butter Pastry

  1. In a small saucepan heat and stir butter over medium heat until light brown; set aside to cool slightly. In a medium bowl stir together all-purpose flour, sugar or sugar substitute blend, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and the browned butter until mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened (2 to 3 tablespoons total). Form dough into a ball.
