Cooking Light's Pear Galette with Brandied Cranberries and Raisins

    This was very good. I added toasted walnuts, but not enough (they were a great addition). I did feel like it was missing something, however. Not sure what. The morning after, I wanted to taste it to see what I thought the day after. My husband and I decided this would be excellent in place of sweet rolls or danish for breakfast. We'll be preparing some & freezing them (to the stage right before baking) for future use. Would be excellent with other fruits, too (apples, etc.).

    Excellent taste! But I couldn't roll dough out to 14" so I had no overlap, and it was tough from too much handling. Didn't like the texture of the pears -- too firm, seemed undercooked. (guests agreed). Next time, I'll saute pears before baking; and increase amount of dough. Despite problems, we all had a second piece -- the taste is worth trying this recipe again.
