Nectarine, Mango, and Guava Galettes


Nothing says summer like having fresh fruit around the house…and sometimes it’s an over abundant amount! So I just took some tropical preserves, some puffed pastry and put my extra nectarines to good use! A quick, and easy, but impressive dessert that is bound to please the family, friends or whoever might stop by on a summer evening!

Nectarine, Mango, and Guava Galettes

Line a large baking sheet with parchment.

Cut 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry into 6 even squares. Set aside.
