Apple Cranberry Galette

I just spotted this yummy galette today at a lovely blog known as Anecdotes and Apple Cores. I knew I wanted to make it right away.  



It was thoroughly delicious, and filled the house with the aroma of fall.  
Here's Monet's recipe.  The only thing I did was substitute dried cranberries for the fresh ones, since I had some already.
 

1 recipe all butter pastry,
refrigerated
2 lb. Granny Smith apples (4 large), peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. orange juice
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 cups fresh cranberries
1 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into thin slices
Sugar, for dusting

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and a line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Prepare your filling: In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, water, honey, orange juice and cinnamon. Heat, stirring often, until sugar has dissolved. Add apples and simmer until softened and opaque, about 5-7 minutes. Remove apples from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving juices in pan.

3. Add cranberries to pan and simmer until they begin to pop and the liquid thickens, about 2-3 minutes.

4. Combine apples and cranberries in a medium bowl, stir until berries are evenly distributed.

5. On a lightly floured, roll out your refrigerated pie dough to a 12 inch circle. Transfer your circle to your prepared baking sheet and spoon filling in the center, leaving a 1-2 inch border. Fold the border over the filling, pleating the edges to form a broad rim. Lay the thin slices of butter over the fruit and dust the crust with raw sugar.

6. Bake in preheated oven until pastry is a light golden brown and the fruit has softened, about 30-40 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

 Today I also made some Stuffed Acorn Squash.


These were easy and quick since they are prepared in the microwave.  And I really enjoyed the combination of the sweet and savory stuffing with the squash.  Click here for the recipe.  

Last but not least I also tried a recipe I saw for some corn pudding.


I found it edible at best, but the kids seemed to like it.  Maybe it's because of the sweetness.  Here's the recipe if you're interested.

There's somethinag about galettes that are just so elegant yet homey at the same time. This one is quite beautiful.

Your galettes looks awesome. I always love this kind of rustic crust. And so is the stuffed squash & pudding! Salivating already. Hope you're having a good day.

I need to get on board the gallette train. I've never made one before! I love the combination of apple and cranberry in this one. Sure looks pretty!

Looks like you were cooking/baking up a storm. I'm down with everything you made!

I have never tried acorn squash, and seeing that photo of yours really makes me want to go pick some up. They look absolutely delicious with that stuffing. Yum!

I love galettes...they are so easy to make!

MaryBeth said...

I so agree with Leslie, these are so simple to make and yet so yummy. I made my first one about a year ago and have not stopped since, looks great!

UrMomCooks said...

That pastry looks delicious! I can almost taste it! (I once baked corn pudding in several acorn squash...is that crazy? The pudding and the squash in one bite was pretty good...) But I agree - once you see that galette you need to make it!

Geez, you've been busy! I saw these galettes over at Monet's blog. So pretty! I really need to pick up some acorn squash!

Karen said...

I love acorn squash, but never have stuffed it. I guess I should! Also, I used to have a corn pudding recipe that was just right, but I can't find it. I've tried many corn pudding recipes looking for something similar, but nothing has done it. I'll take a look at this one.

Krista said...

What a pretty rustic tart! It sounds wonderful. I am also a huge fan of stuffed acorn squash. It's a fall menu staple in our house. Great recipes!

Kathleen said...

I love the simplicity of a galette! Can't wait to try the corn pudding.

Chris said...

I have an acorn squash that needs to be used and if there is anyway to make vegetables better, it is to stuff them with meat! ha ha.

Claudia said...

I saw this on Monet's site and it draws me in all over again. Yes, I need to make it.

Katrina said...

Love the galette. We just made a cranberry one for TWD last week. Galettes are so easy--rustic!
I'll have to try that acorn squash. I've got a few and want to do just the right yummy thing with them.
Happy Thanksgiving!
