This Apple-Cranberry Galette has the most amazing flakey pie dough that is full of sweet apples and tart cranberries. This is such a simple dessert to make but is so impressive to serve.
Servings 8 slices
- 2 apples, cored and sliced thin
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- ½ cup cranberries
- 1 tbls butter, small cubes
Making the Pie Dough
In a large bowl mix the flour and salt.
Add the cold cubed butter and shortening to the flour mixture. With a pastry cutter or two knives, cut the butter into the flour until the butter is pea size.
Start adding the water one tablespoon at a time and mix with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
On a floured surface, turn out the dough and form into a disk. Lightly flour and roll the dough into a large circle about 12 inches. There is plenty of pastry dough to roll, so I roll a large circle then cut a perfectly round circle using a large bowl about 15 inches. This dough can also just be free-form.
Transfer the dough circle to a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Preparing the Apples and Making the Galette
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and prepare a baking sheet with parchment.
Core and thinly slice the apples.
Place the apples in a bowl and add the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Toss to coat
Start placing the apples in a circle on the pastry dough, overlapping the slices until you reach the center. Leave at least an inch on the edge to roll up the dough.
Roll up the dough around the apples, pleating as you go.
Scatter the cranberries over the apples and then dot with butter.
Bake in a 400 degree F. oven for about 45 minutes until the crust is golden and the apples are tender.
Notes for making the galette ~
This recipe is for a double crust pie so you will have leftover pie dough. I do this so I make sure to have enough dough to roll out. The leftover dough can be frozen for a small pie or to make pie tarts.
I slice the apples thin as I like the appearance on the galette, however, you can dice the apples as well.
