INGREDIENTS
 

2 cups light spelt flour
2 tbsp sugar
1⁄2 tsp sea salt
1⁄4 tsp cinnamon
60 g coconut oil
5-7 tbsp cold water
 

Filling

1 kg pitted cherries
1⁄2 cup cherry liqueur
Juice and zest of 1⁄2 lemon
1 tsp cornstarch
Sesame, for sprinkling

 

Dusting

Powdered sugar
 

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 355°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
     

  • To make the pastry, place the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon into a food processor bowl. Mix until combined, then add the coconut oil and pulse until sandy. Add the water a tablespoon at a time until a slightly crumbly dough forms.
     

  • Take out the dough, knead it a little to get a disk and cover with plastic wrap. Set it aside.
     

  • In a large bowl, place the cherries, pour the lemon juice, lemon zest and the liqueur. Stir and refrigerate for half an hour.
     

  • After half an hour, bring the bowl out of the fridge and add the cornstarch, mix well.
     

  • Roll the pastry out into a circle about 1 cm in thickness, place into the prepared baking sheet. Arrange the cherries in the center and fold the pastry up around it.
     

  • Spread coconut butter on the edges of the galette and sprinkle sesame.
     

  • Bake the galette for 45-50minutes, or until golden and the fruit filling has started to bubble. Remove from the oven and cool for about 10 minutes.
     

  • Dust with a little bit of powdered sugar.
