Cranberry Apple Galette


If you are in need of a last minute dessert to make for your Christmas celebration, you've come to the right place. I made this galette simply because I had some leftover ingredients in the refrigerator that I wanted to use up. The prep work for this dish is minimal but it does need to spend 35-40 minutes in the oven so make sure you at least plan ahead for that!

 Galettes are one of my favorite dishes to make because they are incredibly simple, incredibly versatile and are meant to look rustic, meaning you don't need to worry about perfectly crimped pie edges or lattice tops or uncracked cheesecakes.

The combination of apples and cranberries is definitely a festive one, but you could also use apples and pears, pears and cranberries, peaches, or just about any fruit that you can easily slice up and that would bake well in a pie.

    • 1 refrigerated pie crust
    • 2 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup cranberries
    • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tbsp. water
    • 1 tbsp. sanding sugar, optional
1. Combine cranberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl and allow to sit. In another bowl, combined sliced apples with the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon.
2. Preheat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. Unroll the pie crust in the center of the baking sheet. Arrange the apples on the pie crust in a circular fashion, leaving a 1-2 inch border to fold in. Place the sugared cranberries in the center of the apples.
4. Gently fold in the pie crust, allowing it to fold over and crimp naturally. Whisk together the egg with 1 tbsp. of water and brush over the crust.
5. Sprinkle the crust with the sanding sugar. Regular sugar or turbinado sugar can also be used.
6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
