cranberry apple galette

I used to have a friend who always served steamed broccoli with her lasagna. “Everyone does salad with their lasagna”, she scoffed. But it seems to me that everyone does it because it works so well.

Cranberry and orange are another combination that is classic simply because it’s good. Cranberry and lime…well, I don’t know, because I wasn’t brave enough to try it. I do love tart foods, but since I knew I’d be sharing these, I took the safe and familiar route with cranberry and orange.

And it tasted just as good as I expected. I’m almost positive the cranberry-lime variation would have been wonderful too. Of course I can’t be sure, having taken the safe route.

The sisters of Celestial Confections chose this galette for Tuesdays with Dorie, and they have the recipe posted. Make minis at your own time-consuming risk, by cutting 3-inch circles from the rolled dough and stuffing them in muffin cups before filling. Don’t bother trying to fold the sides in. Bake until bubbling and browned, 18-20 minutes.  Also, I used this galette dough, because I already had some in the freezer.  I suspect its malleability helps with maneuvering the dough circles into muffin cups.

  1. What a cool take on the recipe. I’d have never thought of doing that.

  2. Very cute, those would be great for a TG buffet.

  3. Yum! I actually want to try this method with a savory tart for Thanksgiving. Did you butter or grease the muffin pan? I’m thinking I should but curious if you did and whether it turned out. Thanks for the great idea!

    liz – I did, but I don’t think it’s necessary, since there’s plenty of butter in the crust. I suppose it couldn’t hurt though!

  5. Mini apple pies with cranberries? Yes please!

  7. Good idea using little tarts- easier to share!
