Cranberry Cheese Tarts


Leftover cranberries? Make Cranberry Cheese Tarts

I found this delightful appetizer recipe from Costco's but then learned that it came from a blogger. You must meet her. I love how she came up with this recipe. Super easy.

1 Tube Refrigerated crescent rolls
1/2 Cup Whole almonds raw
1 Tbsp Salted butter melted
2 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Soft goat cheese
1/2 Cup Cranberry sauce homemade or canned

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Chop almonds coarsely with a sharp knife. Place the chopped almonds in a bowl and add the melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine and set aside.

Take crescent rolls

 out of the tube and carefully unroll them onto a large piece of parchment paper. Pinch together any seams that have separated.

Place another large piece of parchment on top of the crescent rolls and with a rolling pin roll into a rectangle about 10×16 inches.

Carefully remove the top layer of parchment, then cut the crescent rolls into 24 small squares. (A pizza cutter makes this easy)

Lightly spray 24 mini muffin cups with non-stick spray and then gently press each square into a cup.
Add a scoop of goat cheese, then a scoop of cranberry sauce, then top each tart with the almonds.

Place pans in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until tart shells are lightly browned.

Let cool about 5 minutes and then remove from the tins and serve.
