Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured, clean surface. Using an 8cm (3.5 inch) cutter, stamp out 12 rounds and press into a lightly greased 12-hole bun tin. Prick each base with a fork and line with a small piece of kitchen foil and fill with baking beans. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the pastry is lightly golden. Remove the foil and baking beans and return to the oven for 2-3 minutes.
Turn down the oven to 180°C (Fan 160°C) Gas 4.
Place a slice of goat’s cheese in the base of each pastry case. Return to the oven for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese is slightly melted. Allow to cool for a minute before removing from the tin. Top with a teaspoon of cranberry sauce and decorate with the chopped parsley - serve warm.
