Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange prosciutto in a single layer on prepared pan. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until crisp. Cool prosciutto on a plate.
  3. Roll out one sheet of pie pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle. Using a 5-inch plate or bowl as a guide, cut pastry into three 5-inch circles. Transfer circles to parchment-lined baking sheets. Repeat step with the remaining pastry.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoon apple butter in the center of each pastry to within 1 inch of edges. Top each with 1/4 cup swiss and 3 to 4 pear slices. Fold pastry edges up over filling. (Center will be uncovered.) Brush pastry with egg wash. Sprinkle with remaining swiss.
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Coarsely chop prosciutto; sprinkle over tops. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Apple Cider Glaze:

  1. Meanwhile, combine the apple cider, brandy, brown sugar and salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until glaze is reduced to about 1/2 cup, stirring frequently.
  2. Drizzle galettes with glaze just before serving. Garnish with thyme.
