Pastry Dough

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, shredded on a box grater and frozen
  • 4-5 tablespoons ice water

Cranberry Filling

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (if using frozen, thaw completely)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 large egg white, whisked with 1 tablespoon water
  • Sugar for dusting galette, optional


Pastry Dough

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet or a pizza stone with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and use your fingers or a pastry cutter to work butter into flour until butter is in pea-sized clumps. Drizzle 4 tablespoons ice water over flour and gently toss until dough comes together into a shaggy mass. (if dough seems too dry, drizzle in extra tablespoon) 
  • Turn dough onto a surface and very gently knead several times until smooth. Form dough into a smooth disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill dough 30 minutes while you prepare the filling.

Cranberry Filling

  • In a medium bowl, combine cranberries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, honey, orange juice, zest, and ginger.
  • Remove dough from fridge and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12-in circle (about 1/8-inch thickness) and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet OR a pizza stone. (if using pizza stone, place a pan on rack underneath to catch any cranberry drippings)
  • Spread cranberry filling onto dough to within 2 inches of edges. Gather up edges of dough and fold over, just barely covering filling to create a border. Brush galette crust with egg/water wash and sprinkle with extra sugar if desired.
  • Bake galette at 375F 30-35 minutes until pastry is golden brown and cranberries are bubbly. Remove from oven and cool at least 30 minutes before slicing into wedges and serving. Enjoy!
