Turkey Cranberry Puff Pastry Bites is a super tasty appetizer that is perfect for using up leftover turkey. Turkey, cranberry and Swiss Cheese.
My family couldn't get enough of these appetizers. A huge hit! Turkey Cranberry Puff Pastry Bites are an easy to make appetizer for your Holiday parties. The filling can be made ahead of time, then quickly assembled when ready to serve. This incredible filling would also taste terrific served cold in a sandwich on or on crackers.
Turkey Cranberry Puff Pastry Bites are tasty combination of simple ingredients.
This delicious filling tastes terrific baked and served warm with melted Swiss cheese, but also tastes great served cold.
I used a 2 ¼ inch cookie cutter to the puff pastry to make about 16 appetizers.
Parchment paper is something I always use when baking on my cookie sheets. It makes for easy cleanup, prevents sticking and bakes things up perfectly. Remember to prick the puff pastry before adding the filling.
I used a cookie scoop to make heaping high scoops of filling on the pastry.
Preheat oven to 400ºF and bake for about 18-20 minutes and serve warm.

A big, Western Hello from Saskatchewan!

Hello my fellow Saskatchewanner, I grew up in Humboldt. I know can't go wrong with puff pastry!
I took my first year of University at Muenster, lived in Humboldt. My aunt and uncle also live there. Small world, of course!
As promised, here's the link to my post!
Small world indeed Katelynn, I travel back to Humboldt often as my Mom and Dad are still there. Take care
Could I assemble and refrigerate these the night before and bake the next morning?
Yes Cindy, you could prepare the filling ahead of time. Then baked before serving, they taste great warm.
Can you substitute the Mayo for some thing else
The mayo gives it a great sip of flavor, you could try sour cream or greek yogurt.
We do Thanksgiving in the form of tapas - no main meal, just a day of grazing. But all food should be T-giving related. This looks perfect to add this year!
A day of grazing sounds like a great way to spend Thanksgiving Nan.
You think you could freeze these (cook first) then re-heat? They look amazing!
Hi Michelle, I don't think these would freeze very well.
These look very yummy and I’m looking forward to making them. Could you please clarify the instructions. You say to use one puff pastry sheet but then it says one half 16 oz box. Are you meaning to use several layers for each circle? Thank you.
Hey Sheila, depending on the brand, puffed pastry will sometimes come in a 16 ounce package size which includes 2 sheets of pastry. You will only need one of these sheets.
