Persimmon Galette

What a gorgeous fruit, don't you think so? I love persimmons and with a galette even better. I specially like of galettes the old fashion look and the freedom of the shape, it is the best way to avoid lining a tin and get a perfect fruit tart in a very short time.
You can easily use any fruit at your taste such as plum, apple, pear... I also rather not to peal the fruit, but feel free to do it.

Persimmon Galette

35g almond flour
125g cold unsalted butter

Mix the flour and the almond flour in a bowl with the butter, use a food processor, you can also use your hands, knead until breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolks, the sugar and the pinch of salt and mix it well. Finally add the milk and form a ball, Wrap it with plastic foil and let rest in the refrigerator 30 minutes.
