  • 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter Cubed and chilled in the freezer
  • 5 tbsp Ice Water More if needed


  • 3 Apples Granny Smith, McIntosh or a combination of both
  • 1/3 cup Dried Cranberries or 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Egg Wash:

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Granulated Sugar


  • Whisk flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add cubed and chilled butter to the flour mixture, using your finger tips rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. 
  • Add ice water by spoon. Mix gently until the crust comes together. Don't add too much water. 
  • 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:

  • Wash and dry the apples. Then slice them thinly and place them in a large bowl. 
  • Mix the sliced apples with cranberries, brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger and lemon juice. Set aside. 

Make the galette:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  • Take the crust out of the fridge and place it on the counter. 
  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • 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. 
  • Gently start folding the edges inside to cover a little bit of the apples. 
  • Whisk the egg and brush on the edges of the crust. Sprinkle wit granulated sugar. 
  • Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the apples are baked. 
  • Cool the galette on the counter for 15-20 minutes before slicing. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired.
