A great way to use leftover cranberries! You can freeze these for later!

These are really nice, tasty little pockets. I spread the cream cheese mixture over just half of the pastry square in order to fold the other half over and crimp. I had leftover filling, which I've refrigerated and will use on my morning bagel tomorrow. They baked up nice and crisp and were very good. Thanks Sharon, good recipe!
