Baking on Global TV

These festive cookies are made with low-bush cranberries that grow wild in Saskatchewan's parkland and north. They are often available at the Saskatoon Farmers' Market. You can also use frozen cranberries from the grocery store.

Cranberry Pinwheels
1 half package puff pastry
1/2 cup frozen cranberries
1/2 cup walnut pieces
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. honey
pinch of grated orange rind

With a sharp knife, chop the frozen berries and walnuts together until they are fine and well mixed. Stir them with the brown sugar, honey and a pinch of orange rind. Sample, adding more orange rind if necessary to suit your taste.

With a rolling pin, flatten the pastry into a rectangle approx. 12 x 8 in. Spread the cranberry-walnut mixture over the pastry. Roll from one long side to the other. With a sharp knife, cut the roll into 1/2 inch slices and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If the circles have squished, reshape them with your fingers. Bake at 400°F for about 12 minutes.
