1 pkg puff pastry, defrosted
1 cup Cranberry Sauce *
Zest from one orange
½ cup goat cheese crumbles
Fresh or dried thyme leaves
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Open folded puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. Using a shot glass, cut rounds out of dough. Place these rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using the bottom of the shot glass, press the middle of the pastry creating a little tart shell. Poke the inside of the tart with a fork in a few places. Spread each inner circle with ½ teaspoon of cranberry sauce. Top with a pinch of orange zest and crumbled goat cheese. If your cheese is not salted, add a pinch of salt to the top.
Bake for 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle each tartlet with thyme. Serve.
*You can replace the cranberry with lemon curd or even mincemeat.
