  • 1 Egg

  1. Whisk flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

  2. Add cubed and chilled butter to the flour mixture, using your finger tips rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. 

  3. Add ice water by spoon. Mix gently until the crust comes together. Don't add too much water. 

  4. Transfer the dough to the counter, shape it into a disk and wrap it in a plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge for one hour. 

Meanwhile, make the filling:

  1. Wash and dry the apples. Then slice them thinly and place them in a large bowl. 

  2. Mix the sliced apples with cranberries, brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger and lemon juice. Set aside. 

Make the galette:

  2. Take the crust out of the fridge and place it on the counter. 

  3. Tape a large piece of parchment paper on the counter. unwrap the crust and place it on the parchment paper. Cover with another piece of parchment paper. 

  4. Using a rolling pin, roll out the crust to ⅛" thickness. Carefully transfer it to the baking sheet. It's ok if it's bigger than the baking sheet, we will fold the edges. 

  5. Fill the middle of the crust with the apple filling, don't use the juice that the apples have released by now. Leave two inches from the edges. 

  6. Gently start folding the edges inside to cover a little bit of the apples. 

  7. Whisk the egg and brush on the edges of the crust. Sprinkle wit granulated sugar. 

  8. Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the apples are baked. 

  9. Cool the galette on the counter for 15-20 minutes before slicing. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
