Ingredients

1/3 c
water
1/3 c
honey
1 1/4 c
fresh or frozen whole cranberries
1
refrigerated pie crusts
3 Tbsp
almond paste
1 1/2 tsp
sliced almonds
8 tsp
honey

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Place cooking parchment paper on cookie sheet. In 1-quart saucepan, heat water and honey to boiling. Stir in cranberries; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently, until berries have popped and mixture is thickened. Cool slightly, about 15 minutes.
2Meanwhile, unroll crust on work surface. Roll crust out slightly; cut into 8 4-inch rounds. Reroll scraps and cut remaining rounds if necessary. Place rounds on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Discard scraps.
3Gently press 1 heaping teaspoon almond paste in center of each crust round. Divide cranberry mixture evenly over almond paste. Fold 1/2 inch of each crust round over filling, pinching slightly so crust lays flat on cranberry mixture. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake 14-16 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Drizzle 1 tsp. honey over each crostata. If desired, serve warm with ice cream.
