Lemony Walnut-Raisin Galette

This flaky, buttery pastry dessert has a filling of fruit, walnuts, coconut and cinnamon. There's a lot to love! For even more appeal, dollop sweetened whipped cream on top of each serving. —Ellen Kozak, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 1 medium lemon
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup apricot spreadable fruit
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough (14x9-inch size)
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • Sweetened whipped cream, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Cut unpeeled lemon into 8 wedges; remove seeds. Place wedges in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in walnuts, raisins, spreadable fruit, coconut and cinnamon.
  • Place 1 sheet of phyllo dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet; brush with butter. Layer with remaining phyllo sheets, brushing each layer. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.)
  • Spoon filling onto center of phyllo, leaving a 2-in. border on all sides. Fold edges of phyllo over filling, leaving center uncovered. Brush folded edges with butter. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Using parchment, carefully slide galette onto a wire rack to cool slightly. If desired, serve with whipped cream.
Editor's Note
Look for unsweetened coconut in the baking or health food section.

    really easy prep, and very traditional flavors. Makes a pretty additional to a holiday table. Will serve several as you do not need large slices
