Surprise! I added chocolate the the Cranberry Lime Galette for Tuesday’s With Dorie this week. This week the recipe was chosen by the gals at Celestial Confections. They’ll have the recipe on their blog.
I put off making this until yesterday, which I kept debating whether I should do it or not. Afterall, I did just made three bundt cakes. But I had everything I needed for the galette, including the dough. I had some leftover pieces from of dough (two small ones) from a pie I’d made recently to take to a ladies church activity. The pie I made was Ina Garten's Deep Dish Apple Pie. I’d made this once before a year or two ago. This is a great apple pie and her crust is perfect.
So I rolled out the two small pieces of leftover dough. Whipped up the filling ingredients, which were…easy as pie! In place of the nuts suggested in Dorie’s recipe, I used pistachios. I also used graham cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs. I just happened to have some. The reason I decided to add some chocolate is because the only dried cranberries I had were part of a mix of cranberries, pistachios and chocolate chunks. I chopped it all up and added it to the cranberry mixture. Then I decided that wasn’t quite enough chocolate. So I chopped up some bittersweet chips, only a couple tablespoonfuls. I sprinkled the top of each with some nuts and chocolate as well as putting some on the bottom of the crust.
The two little galettes baked up perfectly. Except that I didn’t photograph one of them that decided to have a little dam burst on part of it, so it was a little ugly. That’ll teach it—it got eaten first! I still have part of it and the other one and lots-o-cake.
I really like the flavors in this galette—tart cranberries with a hint of lime, pistachios, and chocolate, I think it goes well and helps cut a little of the tartness from the cranberries. I also like the bit of chew the dried cranberries add. I would make this again.
