  3. Line two baking pans with foil or parchment paper. Lightly grease the lining and place six dough circles on each pan.

  4. Divide the fig filing between all twelve circles.

  5. Crimp the edges of each circle to form the galettes.

  6. In a bowl, beat the egg. Brush each galette with the egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and cool on a baking rack.
