Simple 'throw together' holiday dessert: Cranberry-lime galette

Wowie, wow, wow, WOW!!! Dorie Greenspan's Cranberry Lime Galette packs a quite a wallop! To be honest, I didn’t expect such a bold, “in your face” punch of flavor when I first baked it – but I got one. This galette is the simplest thing in the world to make, but make no mistake, there’s nothing else simple about it.

The galette starts off benignly enough with a flaky, buttery pie crust. But, what’s inside of that pie crust is the thing that makes this pastry so special. The filling is a symphony of tart, sweet and a little heat. Plump, fresh cranberries are blended with brown sugar, nuts, raspberry jam, apples, lime, dried cranberries and a firm kick of fresh ginger for a brighter than sunshine flavor experience. Seriously, I almost had to put on my sunglasses to eat a slice! The zing of that fresh ginger was just…well…really zingy.
