Expert Tips

  • Either canned or homemade cranberry sauce will work deliciously in this recipe.
  • For best results, be sure to thaw the puff pastry according to package directions so it’s easier to work with.
  • Other sweet toppings like raspberry jam, strawberry preserves or orange marmalade can be used in place of the cranberry sauce, making this an all-seasons appetizer. The key to the brilliance of this recipe is to use something sweet to compliment the cheese.
