Apple Galette with Candied Cranberries

This country-style tart is also topped with a drizzle of our housemade cranberry syrup.

Ingredients:
Farm & Larder galette dough, chilled
4 apples
½ cup candied cranberries
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
F&L cranberry syrup

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Peel, halve and core the apples and slice into ¼-inch thick pieces. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.

2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the pastry into a 12-by-14-inch rectangle and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Decoratively arrange the apple slices over the pastry to within an inch of the edge. Drizzle the honey over apples, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and dot with the pieces of butter. Scatter the candied cranberries all over the apple mixture. Fold the pastry edge up and over the apples to create a 1-inch border.

3. Bake the galette for about 1 hour, until the pastry is nicely browned and crisp and the apples are tender. Transfer the pan to a rack and let the galette cool. Lightly drizzle with F&L cranberry syrup and serve warm.
