Walnut Cranberry Puff Pastry Swirls

Walnut Cranberry Puff Pastry Swirls

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/3 cup walnut preserves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 ounce dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 400.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry to 1/4 inch thick.  In a small bowl, combine the walnut preserves, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, orange peel and salt.  Spread over the pastry.  Sprinkle with the cranberries and chocolate.

Roll the pastry up, and slice into 8 slices.  Place the slices, cut side up, on the baking sheet.

Whisk together the egg and water, then lightly brush over the top and sides of the pastry.  Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.

Serve immediately, sprinkled with freshly grated nutmeg.

Yields 8 swirls.
