Another cranberry dessert! But that’s okay, because I can never make all these luscious fall desserts for my Thanksgiving dinner. Speaking of a groaning board-my table would be tipping over on the dessert side. A French galette is an Italian crostata, a free form tart made a with traditional pie crust dough and baked on a cookie sheet rather than in a pie pan. The tart can be flat like a pizza with sliced fruit on top or if the filling is juicy, the dough is folded over the filling.
Fresh tart cranberries, dried sweet cherries and ginger meld with orange zest with juice, brown sugar and orange marmalade to make a delectable fall dessert. I love the rustic look of this galette, perfect for showing off fresh fruits and berries. The four family members who bake at Celestial Confections chose Dorie Greenspan’s Cranberry Lime Galette for this edition of TWD. The recipe can be found on their blog or from “Baking From My Home to Yours”, a classic baking book. My copy is stained, tattered, and most pages are scribbled with copious notes and tips, but it’s my “go to” book for baking.
