Ingredients

1
Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1/2
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
5
ripe Bartlett or Anjou pears, peeled, 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
1/3
cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with parchment paper or wax paper; spray paper with cooking spray.
  • 2 Remove pie crust from pouch; unroll on lightly floured work surface. Roll into 11-inch round; place in pan. Sprinkle cheese over crust to within 1 inch of edge.
  • 3 In large bowl, toss pears with lemon juice and nutmeg. Add brown sugar and flour; toss gently. Mound pear mixture on center of crust to within 2 inches of edge. Fold edge of crust over pears, pressing gently to seal (crust will not cover pears in center).
  • 4 Bake 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned (filling may leak slightly during baking). Remove galette from pan and cool on cooling rack.
  • 5 In 1-quart heavy saucepan, heat granulated sugar over medium heat about 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Cook and stir 1 minute or until golden. Remove from heat; drizzle caramelized sugar over galette.
