Cranberry Galettes | Peaches Please

Alright, Team. Halloween is over, the leaves are actually changing in Georgia and it’s November…That’s right. It’s Thanksgiving season. Game on. I thought I’d get the turkey day ball rolling with my these cranberry galettes, because, well, I like baking. I also really like baking with cranberries. I think it’s something about how vibrant cranberries are. I mean, the color alone is just gorgeous. Then there’s the flavor – super tart with a hint of bitterness.

I confess. I’m a little obsessed. Ever since I went to Paper Plane and split the deconstructed grapefruit pie with my friend Shannon, I can’t get enough of grapefruit. On a completely reasonable level, I’ve taken to squeezing a grapefruit and mixing it with sparkling water for a tasty and refreshing beverage. On a the more ridiculous side of things, I’ve made four grapefruit pies. Yep. Four. One grapefruit meringue. One grapefruit “key lime-style” pie. Two chess pies. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment.   Okay, as with the pimento cheese, if you’ve never lived in the South you may be wondering what in the world a chess pie is. A chess pie falls in the range
