3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature


1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries

1/4 cup golden raisins

1 egg, beaten

2 teaspoons sugar

Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray.
Unfold pastry sheet. Cut into 4 equal squares.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and honey. Spread 1/4 of cheese mixture on each pastry square, leaving a 1-inch border.
Mix together cranberries and raisins. Spoon fruit over cream cheese. Brush border with beaten egg. Fold pastry over to form a triangle. Crimp edges by pressing a fork on border. Brush tops with beaten egg and sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar.
Place turnovers on prepared sheet. Bake about 20 minutes until puffed and golden brown.
