Hi! I am Swapna. I am the baker, picture taker and dishwasher behind DreamyBaker. In my past life I used to be a UI engineer however I gave that up to spend my days being covered in flour and sugar. I can write code and knead dough. My goal is to inspire you to step into your kitchen with confidence.

- 1 ½ cups All-purpose Flour 1 ½ cups All-purpose Flour
- ½ teaspoon Salt ½ teaspoon Salt
- 1 Egg 1 Egg
- C&H® Organic Raw Cane Sugar 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon C&H® Organic Raw Cane Sugar
- ½ cup Unsalted butter, cold and cubed ½ cup Unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 3-4 tablespoon Ice cold water 3-4 tablespoon Ice cold water
- 1 Egg 1 Egg
- 1 tbsp Water or milk 1 tbsp Water or milk
- C&H® Golden Brown Sugar 1 Teaspoon 1 Teaspoon C&H® Golden Brown Sugar
For the filling:
In a large bowl combine the cranberries, orange zest, pumpkin pie spice, and C&H® Confectioners Sugar. Cover and let sit at room temperature. You will add the nuts later.
For the dough:
In a food processor, add the flour, salt, one egg, and C&H® Organic Raw Cane Sugar and process until combined. Add the cold butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (about 15 seconds). Add the ice water one tablespoon at a time to the dough and process just until it holds together when pinched. Turn the dough out onto your work surface, form it into a large round, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm enough to roll out (about 30 - 60 minutes).
Prepare the galette:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once the dough has chilled, remove it from the refrigerator and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into a 13-inch uniform round. Transfer the dough to a parchment paper or silicone mat lined baking sheet.
Stir the chopped nuts into the cranberry filling. Prepare an egg wash with the remaining egg and a little water or milk.
Evenly spread the filling on top of the pastry, leaving about a 2-inch border. Gently fold the edges of the dough up and over the filling, pleating as necessary. Lightly brush the edges of the galette with the egg wash and sprinkle with the C&H® Golden Brown Sugar. Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cranberries are soft.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Cut into wedges and enjoy.
- Pecans can be replaced with hazelnuts or almonds.
- Galette dough can be made in advance and stored in the freezer for up to 3 months
