Healthy Recipes - These Cranberry Goat Cheese Tarts are a bright, savory appetizer for any of your upcoming holiday parties, especially for Thanksgiving! This appetizer is light enough to open up a large meal. That makes it easy for you to load up on a few without spoiling your appetite!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 package puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 cup cranberry sauce
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese crumbles
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slightly roll out puff pastry sheets with a rolling pin. Using a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter, cut 1 1/2” rounds. Place these rounds on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  3. Using a smaller biscuit cutter or a small knife, create a border just inside the end of the pastry rounds (you are creating a little crust by doing this). Poke the inner circle with a fork all over.
  4. Spread each inner circle with 1 to 2 tsp of cranberry sauce. Top with a pinch of orange zest and crumbled goat cheese.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the over and sprinkle each with fresh thyme leaves. Serve immediately.
