  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons (59.15 g) cold unsalted butter, cut into thin slices
  • approximately 3-6 tablespoons ice water
  • egg wash , (1 egg beaten with 2 teaspoons water)

For the Citrus Topping

  • 1 small grapefruit
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • 1 Satsuma orange
  • 4 kumquats
  • 1/2 cup (118.29 ml) citrus juice
  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar


For the crust:

  • Stir the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl to combine.
  • Add the olive oil and whisk until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Toss in the butter slices and shake to coat.
  • Dribble in the ice water a tablespoon at a time, stirring, until the mixture is just beginning to hold its shape.
  • Form the dough into a ball and roll it into an oblong shape on a lightly floured work surface.
  • Fold into thirds, roll again, and fold into thirds once again.
  • Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and up to several days.

For the Walnut Filling

  • Cream the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the walnuts and flour and mix until incorporated.
  • Mix in the egg, liqueur, and salt until smooth.

For the Citrus Topping

  • Slice the fruits to a thickness of ¼ inch, discarding the tops and bottoms.
  • Layer evenly in a medium saucepan.
  • Pour the juice over and place on medium heat until it begins to boil.
  • Turn the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, swirling the pot occasionally.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the surface, and simmer for another 20 minutes, swirling occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the juice is syrupy.

To assemble the galette:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Spread the walnut filling evenly in the center of the dough, leaving a 3 inch margin all around the edge.

  • Brush the dough with egg wash and sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
