twd ~ Cranberry Lime Galette

Whitney, April, and Elizabeth of Celestial Confections chose Cranberry Lime Galette.

This is the first galette I've ever made. I wanted it to be spectacular! It's like pie - but easier because the dough is just folded over instead of trimmed and pinched. That's what I thought anyway. But my first bite had me thinking "what in the world did I do???"

To start, I'm not a big fan of Dorie's good for anything pie dough. So I. Found another recipe and tried to third it. I got too much salt, way too much salt.

Then I didn't have lime or orange so I used a little hibiscus tea for the liquid. What I didn't think about was that hisbiscus tea is tart and cranberries are tart so tart + tart = pucker!

It didn't help that my gallette sprouted holes in the oven and all the lovely brown sugary liquid filled the baking sheet and burned.

I couldn't even eat it, it went straight in the trash. A snow of powdered sugar couldn't even save this one.

Oh, what a bummer. This was tart on it's own and adding another tart flavor would put it over the top. Usually galettes are faster and easier than pies, so I hope you don't give up on them entirely.
