Cooking Light, December 2000. To simplify the making of 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 mixtures. The raisins should sit in the rum for at least 30 minutes - the longer the better. A galette is a free-form pastry. Slice the banana immediately before arranging them (or add a little lemon juice so as not to discolor). To dress up more, serve warm with vanilla frozen yogurt.
- 1⁄4 cup golden raisin
- 2 tablespoons dark rum
- 0.5 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
- cooking spray
- 3 cups diagonally sliced ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 pounds sliced 1/4-inch thick)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
