cranberry-galette-5

Wowie, wow, wow, WOW!!!  Dorie’s Cranberry Lime Galette packs a huge wallop!  To be honest, I didn’t expect such a bold, “in your face” punch of flavor – but I got one.  This galette is the simplest thing in the world to make, but make no mistake, there’s nothing else simple about it.

The galette starts off benignly enough with a flaky, buttery pie crust.  But, what’s inside of that pie crust is the thing that makes this pastry so special.  The filling is a symphony of tart, sweet and a little heat.  Plump, fresh cranberries are blended with brown sugar, nuts, raspberry jam, apples, lime, dried cranberries and a firm kick of fresh ginger for a brighter than sunshine flavor experience.  Seriously, I almost had to put on my sunglasses to eat a slice!  The zing of that fresh ginger was just…well…zingy.
