This is a fine basic recipe. I use 2 TB bourbon and 1 TB ice water in the crust for greater tenderness. I've also made this with 4 cups of sliced fresh peaches and 1 TB of melted low-sugar apricot jam on top. I find 1 TB of jam to be plenty, and the extra sugar to be unnecessary. Crust is very nice, it's easy to make, and with a bit of yogurt or ice cream, pretty delicious.
This was delicious, and the plum jam is great on its own! Super easy. I used a store-bought pie crust and saved myself a lot of time. One suggestion I would make is not to spread the tablespoon of jam on the crust until about the last 10 minutes. 20 minutes was too early, as it burned.
I made this due to buying plums in bulk at costco. Was very good and easy to make. Wasn't overly sweet and will definitely make again.
I made this galette using a combination of plums and apricots. The fruit was tart and refreshing. The pastry has just enough butter to make this dessert seem decadent without being too unhealthy.
