(KLTV/KTRE) - If you're not a fan of pie-making, or if you just want to try something new, give this galette, which is simply a free-form pie baked on a cookie sheet, a try!
Apple-pear galette with pecan streusel by Mama Steph
1 pre-made pie crust, rolled out on a cutting board or parchment paper to about a 9x13-inch oval or circle
2/3 cup pecans 1/2 cup plain flour 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 6 tablespoons cold butter
Filling 2 apples, cored and sliced thin 2 Bartlett pears, cored and sliced thin 1/2 cup dried cranberries 1/3 cup white sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt juice of 1/2 lemon
Confectioners sugar for dusting
Make the streusel:
In a medium bowl, combine streusel ingredients except pecans. Crumble the ingredients with your hands (or food processor) until they become crumbly. Add pecans, toss, and set aside.
Make the filling:
Combine all filling ingredients in large bowl, tossing well.
Preheat oven to 400. Place the rolled-out crust onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Mound the filling in the center of the crust, leaving about a two inch border all the way around. Spread the streusel over the filling, then fold up the edges around the galette, crimping folds around it as you go. (see video).
