How to Make Mini Honey-Almond Cranberry Crostatas

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place cooking parchment paper on cookie sheet.
    2. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat water and honey to boiling.
    3. 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.
  2. 4. Meanwhile, unroll crust on work surface. Roll crust out slightly, cut into 8 (4-inch) rounds. Reroll scrapes and cut remaining rounds if necessary. Place rounds on parchment=lined cookie sheet. Discard scraps.
  3. 5. Gently press 1 heaping teaspoons almond paste in center of each crust round. Divide cranberry mixture evenly over almond paste. Fold 1/2" of each crust round over filling, pinching slightly so crust lays flat on cranberry mixture.
    Sprinkle each with almonds.

    Bake 14-16 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
    Drizzle 1 teaspoon honey over each crostata, if desired, serve warm with ice cream.
