Made this earlier in the week, its fantastic
Ingredients

  • GALETTE:
  • Cooking spray
  • Single pie crust dough
  • 1/2  cup  (2 ounces) shredded aged sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 5  ripe Bartlett or D'Anjou pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
  • 1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • CARAMEL:
  • 1/3  cup  granulated sugar
Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

To prepare galette, line a jelly roll pan with foil, and coat foil with cooking spray. Roll dough into an 11-inch circle; place on baking sheet. Sprinkle crust with cheese, leaving a 1-inch border.

Combine pears, juice, and nutmeg in a large bowl; toss well. Add brown sugar and flour; toss gently. Arrange fruit on dough leaving a 2-inch border. (Pears will be piled high on dough.) Fold edges of dough toward center, pressing gently to seal (dough will only partially cover pears). Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned (filling may leak slightly during cooking). Cool galette on a wire rack.

To prepare caramel, heat granulated sugar in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stirring as needed to dissolve sugar evenly (about 4 minutes). Cook 1 minute or until golden. Remove from heat. Drizzle over galette.

Try it with apple instead of pear, or use less pear and toss in a cup of cranberries ….. this is a delicious recipe
