If there’s anything I love to bake its galettes, mostly because you can make them out of anything. My favorite is an apple galette, made with some amazing tart apples. Or when it’s summertime a peach or black cheery galette is always a good idea.

But winter is when there is no fresh peaches or cherries around. So I though up this new recipe for a orange and honey crisp galette. Fresh sliced oranges baked under a amazing layer of oatmeal crisp and topped off with honey. Sounds amazing right? Just wait till you try it, the flavors come together perfectly.
