A galette is a free-form, rustic-style tart that is thin and crusty. Unlike other pastries, this one can be quickly tossed together, as shape and size are minor factors. Serve with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.



Preheat oven to 400° F.

For the pastry shell, combine both flours, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add butter, sour cream and enough cold water to reach a pliable consistency. Roll pastry out to your desired size; a 9-inch circle is the easiest but you don't have to be too precise.

Slice pears and place in center of rolled pastry, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold the edge of the pastry over to create a 1/2-inch crust. Top fruit with a dusting of sugar, and gently move the galette onto a baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes.
