Ingredients

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve each slice of your Fall Pear Galette with a scoop of cinnamon or vanilla ice cream.
  • tip 2
    Sharp cheddar cheese is aged longer and has a more intense flavor than mild or medium cheddar cheese.
  • tip 3
    Anjou pears are great for when you are looking for a pear that will hold its shape. Barlett pears are a good option when you want a softer texture.
