Honeyed pears shine in this healthy dessert that comes together in a snap thanks to a store-bought crust. Take these galettes over the top with a spiced whipped topping or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 tablespoons honey, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

  • 2 cups chopped ripe pears, peeled if desired

  • 1 refrigerated vegetarian pie crust (1/2 package)

  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

  • Spiced Whipped Cream (optional; see Tip)


  1. Combine honey, flour, cinnamon and cardamom in a medium bowl. Add pears; toss to coat.

  2. Roll out pie crust on a lightly floured surface into a 13-inch circle. Cut out four 5 1/4-inch pastry circles and place each on a small square of parchment paper. Mound one-fourth of the pear mixture in the center of each pastry, leaving the outer 1 inch uncovered. Fold the uncovered pastry over the filling, pleating as needed. Lightly brush the pastries with egg white. Place 2 pastries (on the parchment squares) in the basket of an air fryer.

  3. Cook at 350℉ until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Lift the papers to transfer the galettes to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining galettes.

  4. Serve the galettes topped with additional honey and cinnamon and/or, if desired, Spiced Whipped Cream.


To prepare Spiced Whipped Cream: Beat 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1 tsp. confectioners' sugar and 1/8 tsp. each ground cardamom and ground cinnamon in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
