Gluten Free Vegan Rustic Pear Galette

From Gluten Free Vegan Love

There are so many great things about this dessert we almost don't know where to begin. A gallette is a magical thing. It's sort of a pie without a dish, but can be savory or sweet, depending on what you pile inside. This particular recipe is fantastic. It's gluten free and adheres to the Paleo guidelines, so everyone can enjoy a piece. Beautiful pears (in season right now) and after slicing, they are coated with maple syrup and a sprinkling of sliced almonds. Warm notes of allspice, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg make this a comforting dessert. So many classic flavors, and they combine to make this decadent recipe. You must try it.
