This Thanksgiving, serve this easy and delicious recipe for an apple-cranberry galette.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 large, tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 double recipe sweet pastry dough, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into thin slices
  • Sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. In a large fry pan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon and heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the apple slices and simmer until opaque, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the apple slices to a bowl and let cool slightly.
  2. Add the cranberries to the juices in the pan and simmer until they start to pop, about 2 minutes. Transfer the cranberries to the bowl with the apples.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high, boil the juices until reduced slightly and spoon over the fruit.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  5. Divide the chilled pastry dough in half. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each half into a 12-inch round. Transfer each round to separate baking sheets. Divide the fruit filling equally between the pastry rounds and spread it in an even layer, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border uncovered. Fold the border over the fruit. Lay thin slices of butter over the exposed fruit.
  6. Bake the galettes until the pastry is golden brown and the apples are tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Let the galettes cool completely on the pans. Sprinkle with sugar just before serving.
