Ingredients

  • One package refrigerate pie crusts, such as Pillsbury, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 Cup sweetened, dried cranberries
  • 1 Cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 Cup honey

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.

Unroll the pie crusts and mold each of them into a 10 ½-inch square. Brush the squares with melted butter.

In a food processor, place the cranberries, pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and orange peel. Cover and process with on-and-off pulses until the mixture is finely chopped. Spread 1/2 of the mixture onto each pie crust square.

Roll up each pie crust into a log and pinch the edges tightly to seal. In a  small bowl, beat the egg and water until well blended. Brush the egg mixture over each log. Using a serrated knife, cut each log into 10 slices. Place the slices, cut sides up, 1 inch apart on on the baking sheet, replacing any filling that gets lost. Reshape the slices, if necessary.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove the pinwheels from the parchment to a cooling rack. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of honey on each slice. Serve warm or cool.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
