I have been coming up with a few new recipes
using Cranberries! I just love the slight sweetness
and tangy tartness of them.
These Turnovers are so simple yet they
taste as if you spent a long time in the kitchen.
I did that on purpose. I placed the filling in some
half pint jars, tucked it in a basket full of
warm homemade biscuits for the neighbors.
So if you don't want "extra" filling just half the recipe.
(2) 8 oz. Cream Cheese- softened
2 Egg Yolks - reserve the whites
2 C. Powdered Sugar
1 tsp. Almond Extract
1 C. Cranberry Sauce Whole Berries
2 pkg. Puff Pastry- thawed
Cinnamon/Sugar for topping
Preheat Oven to 400
Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar.
Add in the egg yolks, cranberry sauce and extract.
Beat until smooth.
Roll out the puff pastry cutting into 5x5 inch squares.
Place a spoonful of filling in the center of each square.
Fold over into a triangle, brush edges of dough with egg white's.
Using a fork press the edges together sealing them.
Brush the tops of each with the egg white's and sprinkle
with cinnamon/sugar. Place onto a parchment lined
cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
*I then drizzled some melted white chocolate on top*
Have a Berry Merry Holiday!
