Step 1

Harvest Guava Galette - Step 1

Place flour and shortening into a food processor. Pulse to chop, forming large pieces the size of grapes. Add egg and pulse to combine 5-10 more pulses until the mixture comes together into a rough ball of dough. If the mixture comes together tightly into your hand then remove from the bowl. If it is too dry and falls apart add 2-3 tbsp of water until the dough holds together firmly without being wet.

Step 2

Harvest Guava Galette - Step 2

Roll out between 2 sheets of lightly floured wax paper.
Peel back the sheet every few rolls to unstick the dough.
Turn the dough over and repeat.
This prevents sticking and faster stretching and the dough does not get warm from your hands.
Refrigerate until needed.

Step 3

Place apples, pears, sugar, spice into a bowl and toss to mix.

Step 4

Place dough onto a large enough parchment lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle bread crumbs on bottom of center of dough to within 3" of the edges.

Step 5

Pile the fruit onto the centre of the dough, mounding.
Dot the guava paste all over and tuck in some pieces.

Step 6

Fold the rough dough edges over the fruit, overlapping the edges firmly.

Step 7

Brush the outside of the crust with milk.
Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Step 8

Bake in a preheated 350F for 45-55 min or until golden brown.
