                         Streusel mixture:
      1/2  cup           light brown sugar
      1/2  cup           granulated sugar
        1  cup           unsifted all-purpose flour
        4  ounces        unsalted butter
                         *butter pastry
        1  medium        ripe pineapple, cored, peeled, -- cut into 1/4 " slices
      1/4  cup           strained warm apricot jam
 Streusel: combine brown sugar and granulated sugar in a small bowl. Add
 flour and mix to combine. Add butter and work in with fingertips until
 mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Refrigerate in airtight container until
 ready to use.
 Galette: preheat oven to 400. Cut pineapple slices in half and place on
 paper towel to absorb juice. Arrange pineapple slices over pastry in
 concentric circles, overlapping them slightly, leaving 1 inch border around
 edge. Fold pastry edge over edges of pineapple slices all around the
 galette. Sprinkle streusel over top. Bake 40-45 minutes or until crust is
 golden brown. Remove from oven and brush warm apricot glaze over pineapple
 slices and serve lukewarm cut into slices. *A store bought pie shell works
 fine for this recipe or make your own pastry with flour and butter ( 2 cups
 flour to 1 stick of butter). Use ice water until it make a pastry ball.
