We use more puff pastry at this time of year than any other. It’s such a quick way to perk up leftovers. Those of you who like precise measurements should come back tomorrow.

Cranberry, Blue Cheese and Pecan Pockets

  • One sheet of puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup or so cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup or so chopped pecans
  • 1-2 ounces blue cheese

Defrost puff pastry and roll out into a square about one and a half times the original size. Cut into 16 smaller squares, about 2 inches by 2 inches. In the center of one half put a half teaspoon each of cranberry sauce and blue cheese. Sprinkle with a few pecans. Fold over into a triangle. Press the folded edges with a fork all the way down each side. Arrange triangles on a greased baked sheet or one lined with parchment. Bake at 400 until golden, about 12 minutes.

  3. Oh my – love the sweet and savory notes in this. Looks dangerously addictive:)

  4. The combination of cranberries & blue cheese is just a perfect marriage of flavors. These look divine.

    What a great combination of flavors, Greg! They’d make a great appetizer or snack. Either way they’d disappear pretty quickly.
