Ferrante’s Cranberry Pursette

 Ingredients:

8 4x4 pasty squares

2 cups cranberry sauce (homemade or store bought, just be sure to mix it until it's smooth)*

8 slices bacon, cooked through but not too crispy

4 ounces Feta cheese

1 white onion, caramelized

  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until cooked through but not crispy (the bacon will crisp up in the oven). Once cooked chop bacon into small pieces; set aside.
  2. Cut puff pastry square diagonally and fill with 1 tablespoon cranberry sauce, bacon, feta & caramelized onions. Take the two longest sides of the puff pastry and wrap like a bow.
  1. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Serve with a glass of Ferrante’s Cranberry Blanc.
