Pear Galette with Almond



Remember my galette obsession? Here we go again.

My mom's friends Michael and Sharyle grow these spectacular pears and were kind enough to share some with us. A pear galette seemed a fun way to make them into an easy dessert. Plus, Paul was inspired to make pear jam, two ways. Keep an eye out for those recipes coming soon.


Ingredients

1/2 Galette dough recipe (see First Fall Galette )
5 ripe pears, peeled and sliced thin
a handful of crushed almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tablespoons Turbinado sugar

Roll out galette dough between 2 pieces of parchment. Arrange pear slices in center of rolled-out dough, leaving 2 inches of crust as border. Remember to overlap pear slices to assure a fruity, moist tart. Mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, almonds, and Turbinado sugar. Sprinkle over the top of the galette. Fold in sides of crust to shape edge.
Bake for 45-50 minutes in 400 degree oven. Serve with generous dollop of gently whipped cream.

Serves 4
