Sweet & sour cranberry sauce with cream cheese & frozen berries. Christmas just got better with this sweet treat made with Jus-Rol Puff Pastry Sheet!

Ingredients
  • 1 x 320 g pack Jus-Rol, Ready rolled puff pastry
  • 50g cream cheese
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp caster sugar (to taste)
  • 100g frozen mixed berries, defrosted and drained
  • 1 tblsp cranberry sauce
  • 1 tsp caster sugar (to taste)

Techniques Used
  • How to Roll Puff Pastry
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C (fan)/Gas 6.
  2. Unroll the pastry sheet and using a sharp knife cut in half lengthways. Cut each half into 3, so you have 6 squares, approximately 12cm by 12cm’s. Place the squares on a baking tray.
  3. Mix the cream cheese with the vanilla and sugar and place a small blob in the middle of each square.
  4. Remove as much water from the fruit as possible and mix with the sugar and cranberry sauce. Place a generous teaspoon of the fruit mixture on top of the cream cheese.
  5. Using a sharp knife, make a cut from the edge of the cream and fruit filling, to each corner of the pastry. Pick up a corner of pastry and bring it to the middle, miss the next corner and pick up the 3 rd corner and bring it to the middle, repeat this twice until you have a pinwheel.
  6. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes, until the pastry has risen and is lightly golden.
  7. Allow to cool slightly before carefully transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
Tips
  • Take the pastry out of the fridge and remove from the packaging approximately 10 minutes before you are ready to use it, as it will be easier to work with.
  • You could replace the red berries with apricot jam or canned peaches.
  • For a sweet treat, blend 50g icing sugar with a few drops of water to make a thick, but runny icing and drizzle over the pastries before serving.
