Cranberry Persimmon Lime Galette - Tuesdays with Dorie
Cranberry Persimmon Lime Galette

I'm back on the Tuesdays with Dorie bandwagon. I was a little caught up in Bundt and dessert bar baking recently...I hope everyone had a great National/International Bundt Day yesterday! I apologize for missing several weeks of TWD...I hope I catch up on some rewinds.

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Whitney, April, and Elizabeth of Celestial Confections chose Cranberry Lime Galette on pages 364-365 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

A simple pie crust.
Fall fruits.
A bit of ginger.
Yum.

I love the galette. It is quick and easy. I love the free form. Of course, I wax poetic, but I'm really just saying, "I'm lazy and don't want to stick this in a pie tin and flute the edges."

Because persimmons are the greatest fruit on the planet, I substituted the apple for diced kaki (Japanese term for persimmon). Yeah, JustJenn (kaki and banana hater) this one won't be left on your doorstep.

I am disappointed this is not in bundt form.

I'm amazed that you can bake anything after 30 straight days of "______". I won't say it. What a beautiful galette! So festive and the "pie for the rest of us"!

Bye bye bundts. For now. Yes to galettes! This was a great one. I added chocolate, it helped cut the tartness and is really good.

It looks great! I have never had a persimmon. I really need to buy one and try it!

Persimmons are the greatest fruit ever! I love the contrast of orange persimmon and red cranberries.

I still have not had a persimmon! If Jenn hates bananas and persimmons and I love bananas, maybe I'll love persimmons? That's my logic.

i don't think I have ever had a persimmon. Have to find one. Looks good.

I'm kind of sad that this isn't a bundt ;) I have always wanted to try persimmons but I'm not too sure if we have them down here in Texas. I'll have to investigate. Or beg you to send me some ;)

Great looking galette.

it's weird coming here and not seeing bundts. I miss them already. Not that this doesn't sound delish.
