Baked Puff Pastry with Cranberry Sauce

We are into last few days of December and today being Christmas gives me a reason to update the blog.
I have tried some recipes with puff pastry sheets, store bought though in past and they had been a hit with my family. Dear daughter even asks for a repeat of the recipe like this one, every festive season.
These puff pastry with cranberry sauce and topped with cream frosting was again well received at our dinner table. And this version is inspired by Brie and Cranberry puff pastry. I haven’t included brie cheese for this recipe though but still it’s very flavorful.

These looks pretty and with white cream frosting a very delicious combination. Now to the detailed recipe
Baked Puff pastry with Cranberry sauce
Recipe requirements
1 pack puff pastry sheet
½ cup of cranberry sauce
½ tsp of cinnamon powder
Some flour to roll the sheets
Take out the puff pastry sheets and let it thaw for a while.
Then dust off with some flour and roll into a rectangular sheet. Just to even out the surface of the puff pastry sheet.
Cut the sheet into half. Now put cranberry sauce on both the sheets.
Sprinkle cinnamon powder.
Now from one end start rolling towards middle stopping at middle. From the other side start rolling and let it come in touch with the other rolled sides. The puff pastry sheet will look like a log at this stage.
Secure the two sides well with each other. Now cut these rolled puff pastry log sheets into ½ inch thick pieces. From each log at least 5-6 pieces will come out. The shape will be more of a mini palmier.
Now preheat an oven at 160 Deg C. Put them on a floured baking tray for about 15-20 mints or till they come out nice golden in color.
Take out and let it cool off.

Prepare cream frosting
½ cup of double cream
1/4  cup of icing sugar
2 tbs of milk
Mix cream, icing sugar and milk and whip it to make small soft peaks.
Gently put this cream frosting over the cooled puff pastry pieces.
You can refrigerate for 1-2 hrs., before you start consuming them or you can enjoy straight away.
These are delicious as snacks as well.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the festive spirit linger on and creates cherished memories for you and yours. Enjoy and celebrate.
