Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Pear Cranberry Roll Up Tart

Dorie Greenspan pear and cranberry roll up tart on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is an unassuming looking dessert. It’s basically ingredients for a fruit galette rolled up to make a kind of Danish fruity roll – sort of like these Sara Lee treats from my childhood. The recipe is pretty easy – Dorie’s “go-to” galette dough filled with pears, cranberries and some preserves.

Dorie Greenspan pear and cranberry roll up tart for Tuesdays with Dorie on eatlivetravelwrite.comUm, yeah. This was good. Really good.

    Okay, NOW I know what the heck happened to this after the first “teaser” slice! ­čśë

    Sometimes simple can be great: and in this case, it was.

    Lucky staff room.

    IF there was more, I’d pair with a gorgeous off-dry French Ros├ę des Riceys.

    This was really good, Jim and I could not stop raving about it, and great left over with a little heat from the microwave. Yours looks so perfect.

    This was very good even though mine did not look so great. I took the rest of it to work and my guys at home just would not stop complaining about it.
    Your photos look so sunny and bright.

    Great photos! Your tart looks perfect! I agree that you can enjoy a nice buttery pastry at any time of day; I had a piece of tart as a midnight snack…

    Oh yeah… looks and sounds great. Send me some, Mardi.

    Gorgeous Mardi! I think it can pass as breakfast, right? There is fruit after all…

    This reminded me of store-bought strudel as well but soooo much better!

  9. Margaret November 24, 2015 at 19:47 #

    Yes, it was delightful. Definitely a keeper. Rustic is perfect!

    Perfection! No wonder this was a hit.

    Beautiful! Perfectly baked!

    I believe any time of day is a good time for a Dorie treat. This was good and devoured by my guests in one sitting.

  13. Cakelaw November 27, 2015 at 19:07 #

    I agree Mardi – this was delish. I hadn’t thought of the Sara Lee thing, but they do look like this.

    Oh so yummy — and I don’t think it looks rustic at all, just perfect!
