Easy Caramel-Banana Galette

Easy Caramel-Banana Galette Recipe
The only trick to making this simple dessert is leaving the caramel unstirred for 8 minutes; stirring can cause it to harden. To simplify the topping, substitute bottled fat-free caramel sauce for the sugar and water. Heat the sauce in the microwave for 1 minute, then stir in the raisin mixture. The raisins should sit in the rum for at least 30 minutes - the longer the better. Slice the banana immediately before arranging them on the tart so they don't discolor. To dress it up even more, serve warm with vanilla frozen yogurt.

Ingredients

1/4 cup golden raisins
2 tablespoons dark rum
1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
Cooking spray
3 cups (1/4-inch-thick) diagonally sliced ripe banana (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water

Preparation

Combine raisins and rum in a small bowl; set aside.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Roll dough into a 10 1/2-inch circle, and place on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Arrange the banana slices in concentric circles on crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold a 2-inch dough border over banana slices, pressing gently to seal (dough will partially cover slices). Bake at 425° for 30 minutes.

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat until golden (about 8 minutes). Remove from heat; carefully stir in raisin mixture until combined. Cool slightly. Pour over banana slices. Cut into 6 wedges.
