Tuesdays with Dorie: Cranberry Lime Galette

cranberry lime galette

My husband was super-excited when I pulled this Cranberry Lime Galette out of the oven.  For some reason more excited about it than about other things I’ve made recently.  Thank you, ladies of Celestial Confections!  I think he’s just pretty happy about Thanksgiving…a couple extra days off work and his mother coming to be the first overnight guest in our house…and the sight of this triggered thoughts of our favorite dinner of the year!     

He was right to be excited– this is good stuff!  I am a huge fan of tart and snappy cranberry deserts, and with the lime added in, this galette delivered on that.  I used some candied ginger chopped into tiny bits in place of fresh, and it had a great spicy ginger punch, too.  The crust stayed super crisp, and I think it’s quite pretty in its own rustic way.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan (it’s also here on NPR’s website) or Celestial Confections.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!
