This holiday cranberry galette has a sweet and tart fresh cranberry topping flavored with brown sugar and vanilla. It's a beautiful way to end your Christmas dinner.

Recipe Notes

  • You'll only use one of the crusts in the box unless you double the filling.
  • The filling can easily be doubled to make two galettes. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine all the filling ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. 
  2. Roll or press the dough out to a 12-inch circle (it doesn't have to be perfect). Put the dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. 
  3. Spoon the cranberry filling into the middle of the dough and spread, leaving a border that's about 2 inches. Fold the crust up to just cover the edges of the filling. Sprinkle the edges of the crust with some granulated sugar. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until crust is golden.
