Pear-Cranberry Roll-Up Tart


This one got rave reviews from my tasters but I am not so sure I would make it again…

I feel like I should have known…especially when there is a section in the recipe called,

“A word on construction”…

It tells us we are bound to have tears and cracks and that they are easily patched, but come on.  This was not easy dough to work with/roll and I didn’t expect it since we have used this Galette Dough before on other recipes.  My roll was sticking and cracking all over the place…had to take out some of the filling to pull the dough back together to patch it up.  I was feeling like I was on a sinking boat…no kidding.  Every time I patched one place another popped up.  Ugh!  Anyway, did the best I could and hoped that once it was baked, it would look and taste alright. 🙂


It ended up ok and like I said, everyone thought it was delicious.  For me, I prefer the Danish Braid we made awhile back from BWJ.  Same idea but MUCH easier dough to work with…I have actually re-made that one many times it was such a hit.

Bottom line: yay for trying something new and everyone liking it, but not thinking I will make this one again.

  1. Your thoughts.on construction echoed mine. Sinking ship. One tear patched begets another tear… I tore bits of dough off the end and used them to patch in some cases. Glad to know I wasn’t alone!
