Pear, Apple and Cheese Galette

The cheese is a welcome surprise to this beautiful dessert.


1/2 package pie crust, refrigerated, 15 ounce

1 package Skellig cheese, shredded

2 pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices

2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

3 tablespoons flour

1/3 cup maple syrup


1. Preheat oven to 400° F.

2. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Roll dough into a large circle; place on sheet. Sprinkle dough with cheese, leaving a 1-inch border.

3. Combine pears, apples, lemon juice, and nutmeg in a large bowl; toss. Add brown sugar and flour; toss gently. Arrange fruit on dough leaving a 2-inch border. Fold edges of dough toward center, pressing gently to seal. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until crust is lightly browned (filling may leak slightly during cooking). Carefully slide galette onto a wire rack and cool slightly.

4. Drizzle maple syrup over galette.
