Tuesdays With Dorie – Cranberry Lime Galette

by Jessica on November 16, 2010

Cranberry Lime Galette

As I was making the big decision on what to choose during my turn as TWD hostess back in June of ’08, this tied with the Parisian Apple Tartlets. I’m almost sad that I didn’t pick this instead because I loved it so much!

Not only is it gorgeous, but it tastes wonderful, too. I’ve read that a few bakers disliked the tartness, but I actually doubled the amount of lime that Dorie calls for and almost ate the entire thing. It was that good. Luckily, I didn’t… I ended up taking the rest to work and pawning it off. J out in the warehouse is great about taking stuff off my hands! 🙂

That is so gorgeous! I didn’t get to make this one yet, but I hope mine turns out as well as yours when I get that far.

Your tart is pone of the prettiest ones I have seen today. I love it! I also looks so darn delicious.

Wow, what a beauty. I’m so glad you enjoyed this. I haven’t made mine yet although the dough is in the frig and plan on it today. I loved the Shorbread version so I’m looking forward to this one. Great photos.

That is a hard decision, but I love the apple tartlets too! Luckily for me, by the time my decision rolls around, the list will be much shorter. 🙂

Oh wow, that looks perfect! (I almost thought it was made with cherries.)

I wish I had someone off in a warehouse to take all of this dessert off my hands, LOL.

The tartness of this galette is what made it so wonderful! Beautiful job! I can easily see this being served on Thanksgiving or on the dinner table of a Tuscan villa. 🙂

I agree – it looks and tastes gorgeous! (Mine didn’t look gorgeous, but it did taste pretty fine.)

I thought the sweet/tart combo was just perfect. I used Orange juice and it added just a hint of extra flavor without the extra tartness.

Yours is beautiful.

yours is absolutely picture perfect.

Your galette is so stunning it makes me sad I wasn’t brave enough to try the cranberry version! I went with mostly apples but hopefully I’ll try the cranberry one soon. Glad you enjoyed it so much 🙂

This sounds so delish and love how your crust looks! Nice work and thanks for sharing.

I loved the lime-cranberry combination, too, but, then I like tartness. I used a fresh lime from my tree. Your galette looks so delicious!


13 Katrina November 17, 2010 at 12:45 am

Ooh, that is so purty! Love how red yours looks. I didn’t think it was too tart either, but maybe it was the chocolate I added to mine. 😉

Beautiful galette!! I could imagine how tart it would taste and my tongue started to ‘shrink back’!
