These Cranberry Apple Walnut Tarts would be the perfect addition to your holiday dessert table! Perfect for when you want to make individual desserts!
As soon as I saw cranberries in my grocery store I grab two bags. I LOVE using fresh cranberries in recipes, and I am so happy they are in season right now.
Confession time: These started out as palmiers.
After making them once I decided I didn't really like how they looked, so I changed it up a little and that is how these cranberry apple walnut tarts came about.
Now, making them will take a few steps but it is so worth it in the end.
One thing you have to do is score the edges. What does that even mean?
Basically, you want to cut a little line about a 1/2-inch from the edge. This way when the pastry cooks it will separate just a little from the edge.
This helps when wanting to make a well in the center of the pastry.
When you are done cooking the puff pastry then you need to recut the line and remove the tops. You now have a little center or hole in your pastry where your filling will go.
The filling is simply amazing. I was eating it with a spoon because it was so good!
I used Cortland apples that I bought from the store. They were local and freshly picked.
They are also super white inside, which kind of freaked out my kids. It had been a long time since we’ve seen this type of apple.
You can definitely use any variety you want, but these worked well.
If you like cranberries with puff pastry try this cranberry apple strudel. It's so good.
Looking for something savory? Try these cranberry pecan roasted brussels sprouts.
