  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 2 cups sour cherries pitted, stemmed, and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup honey if too stick, gently heat to loosen
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water for the egg wash


  • Preheat to 375F. Line your aluminum baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
  • In a bowl, mix together the sour cherries, honey, arrowroot powder, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.
  • Roll out the puff pastry until it is about 1/4 inch thick. You can use a wine bottle if you do not have a rolling pin.
  • Pour the cherry mixture into the center of the puff pastry leaving ~1-inch border. Fold over the puff pastry edges over the cherries.
  • Brush the edges of the puff pastry with the egg wash.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes until the puff pastry is golden brown.



If you have a baking steel, you can bake this galette on top of the steel to ensure you do not get a soggy bottom!
This recipe also works with regular cherries if you're looking for something sweeter.
Serve with your favorite vanilla ice cream!
