Cranberry Crackle Tart


I’ve just joined Tuesday’s with Dorie, a group that bakes their way through Dorie Greenspan’s new book, Baking Chez Moi. Every once in a while on a Tuesday, I’ll be posting the results of a recipe the group votes on baking. This week it’s a Cranberry Crackle Tart!


The group is asked not to post the full recipe online, so you will just see pictures of the final result plus any recommendation I have.


The Cranberry Crackle Tart has a thin layer of jam topped with cranberry studded meringue. Mine didn’t puff up as much as I would have hoped, but it was still delicious. A much lighter alternative to the traditional rich Thanksgiving pies, or a fresh dessert for any time of year!

      Thank you! Yes, I think we’ll all have a lot of adventures with this book!

  2. Welcome to the group and you did a fine job on your tart. I love all those crackles, they just make everything look fun and exciting, don’t they? We really enjoyed the taste of this one.

      Thanks so much! Yes, I was pleased with the crackles. We also enjoyed the taste; it went quite quickly, with only three of us!

    • Kristin says

      Yes, I think sometimes the crispiness adds to the taste. A little toasty note, don’t you think? Thanks for your nice comment!

      It’s new! This was my first pie in it, so I’m pleased some people noticed; thanks!

  3. It might not be as puffy as some but your tart looks great! And that dish is beautiful. Welcome to the group!

  4. Welcome to the group! Your tart turned out beautifully and that pie plate is gorgeous! I loved how light this was, the contrast between all the textures and tastes involved, and just how different from the ordinary holiday dessert it was, too.
