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 tablespoon sugar
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.
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.
Slice your fruit into 1/8" slices. Lay out the fruit alternating pear and apple slices back and forth.
Fold up the sides of the pastry over the edges, making sure to crimp the corners.
Grate a bit of lemon zest over the fruit and sprinkle the sugar over it as well.
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.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed up and golden.
Allow to cool a bit, and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
