These are a great Pastry to serve at a Christmas Party at home, or to take to a Party. They're also perfect to serve at Thanksgiving. This recipe has been adapted from several options.

Cranberry Pecan Pastries topped with Honey.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Sheet Pans lined with Parchment Paper

1 C Dried Cranberries
1 C finely chopped Pecans
1/2 C Granulated Sugar
The Zest of 1 Orange
2 Refrigerated Pillsbury Pie Crusts
2 TBS Butter, melted
1 Egg
2 TBS Water
Honey for Garnish.

In a small Mixing Bowl:
Orange Zest
Mix well.

Roll out each piece of Dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Trim each of them into a square.
Brush both of them with melted Butter.

Divide the Filling evenly and spread it over each piece of Dough.
Roll each of them tightly into a log.
Wrap tightly in Plastic Wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Unwrap the Logs, placed seam side down on a cutting board.

In a small bowl, Whisk Egg and Water together to create an egg wash.

Brush each Log with the egg wash.

Slice each log into 10 equal pieces.
Place them 1" apart, cut side up, onto a Sheet Pan.

Bake for 12 - 15 minutes.
Remove pan to a rack and immediately brush each pastry generously with Honey.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes.

Transfer pastries to a rack to cool completely.

To serve, transfer them to a Serving Platter.
Enjoy them with a great cup of Coffee, a Latte or an Espresso!

Peace in the Kitchen!
