Cranberry Apple Pear Tart

December 8, 2014

Whether you are using leftover cranberry sauce or not this is a delicious and delightful way to end any holiday gathering! I found it on the Imagine Childhood blog site.




  • one sheet puff pastry

  • 1 cup left over cranberry sauce*

  • 1-2 apples

  • 1-2 pears

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • lemon zest

  • egg yolk (optional)

  • confectioners sugar for dusting


* if you don't happen to have any cranberry sauce left over, but you do have cranberries, you can make a quick sauce with a dry pint of cranberries, 3/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup sugar.  Bring to a boil and then simmer until it thickens (about 10 min).


Preheat the oven to 400.

  1. Lay your defrosted puff pastry out on a lined baking sheet. Spread the cranberry sauce over the pastry leaving about an inch of pastry untouched around the edges. 

  2. Slice your fruit into 1/8" slices.  Lay out the fruit alternating pear and apple slices back and forth.

  3. Fold up the sides of the pastry over the edges, making sure to crimp the corners. 

  4. Grate a bit of lemon zest over the fruit and sprinkle the sugar over it as well.

  5. mix the egg yolk with a bit of water in a separate bowl and brush the egg wash over the top of the pastry edges.

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed up and golden. 

  7. Allow to cool a bit, and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
