There are endless variations that can be made with this. Just imagine your favorite sweet or savory combination and try it out!

Ingredients:
8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature*
7 oz Cranberry Sauce (½ can)*
1 pkg (2 sheets) Puff Pastry, thawed, but kept in fridge
10 oz Deli Sliced Turkey Meat (I used a package of Foster Farms)
Flour to dust work surface

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350º.
2. Mix Cream Cheese and Cranberries until smooth
3. Dust your work surface with a bit of flour so pastry won’t stick
4. Remove one sheet of Puff Pastry (leaving other in fridge for now)
5. Roll the sheet to smooth out the seams and form a rectangle with the longer part going side-to side and the short, front-to-back.
6. Spread surface of pastry with some of the Cream Cheese-Cranberry mixture, leaving the far ½ or so empty in order to seal the roll before cooking
7. Top Cream Cheese mixture with a layer of sliced Turkey
8. Roll up starting at the edge near you. If you gently pull back towards you as you roll, it’ll give the filling more room, so it’s less likely to ooze out the far side.
9. When you get to the end, pinch the plain dough against the layer beneath it to seal.
10. Place seam-side down, cut in half, and refrigerate to make it easier to cut.
11. Repeat with second sheet of Puff Pastry
12. When chilled a bit, slice into 1/4” – 1/2” slices and place, cut side down on a greased baking sheet.
13. Bake in heated oven for 20 minutes, or until edges start to brown
14. Serve hot out of the oven, or at room temperature

*I doubled the Cranberry and Cream Cheese mixture – it goes great on bagels, sandwiches, and would be good over granola!
