It’s Holiday madness around here, is it for you too? My brain is going 90 nothing with a nonstop to do list of all the gifts I need to purchase still, all of the things I need to pop in the mail, wrap, etc etc. I wanted to pop intoday though and share some exciting news (and some tasty foods) with you guys. I’m a CK Mondavi ambassador! That means for the next few months, you guys get to listen to me talk and share some yummy recipes as well as some yummy wine.
Today though, since it’s the Holiday season I wanted to share some Holiday recipes. Two actually. One is a cheeseball (that I shared here a few months ago) but made again with the RONDELÉ® BY PRÉSIDENT® cheese. YUM! And the other is more of a dessert. We whipped up some quick & easy Brie & cranberry tarts. SO good!
On to the tarts! These were my favorite out of the two.
For these, you will need:
Dough (I used a crescent dough sheet)
1 bag of Cranberries
1 cup Orange juice (or just water)
1 cup Sugar
Start by making your cranberry sauce.
Mix orange juice (or water), sugar, and cranberries in a pot and bring to a low boil (over medium high heat).The cranberries will start popping or you can kind of help them along the way. I smash a few here and there to help get em going. Once done, set aside to cool.
While you have your cranberry sauce cooling, prepare your dough.
Use a cookie cutter (or a glass) to cut out your dough.
Whisk your egg and coat one side of dough with egg mix.
Place dough on prepared (oiled) cookie sheet, egg side down.
Top with chopped brie pieces and cranberry sauce. We cut our cheese into tiny squares.
Once you have them ready to go, top with another piece of dough.
Use a fork to press the dough together and then eggwash the tops of them.
Sprinkle your tarts with powdered sugar, sugar granules, or nothing at all.
Bake according to dough (mine was 350 degrees for 13 minutes).
