Thanksgiving Bites

When you think Thanksgiving you think turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. That’s why I combined it all in one delicious bite.



  • 1/3 Cup cubed turkey deli
  • 1/3 Can of cranberry jelly
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pineapple
  • 2 Tbsp pineapple juice
  • 1 Tsp pumpkin spice
  • 4 Squares of pastry dough

Heat the cranberry jelly, sugar, pineapple juice and pieces together in a pan over medium-low heat. After it is all combined, add a tablespoon of the cranberry sauce to the rolled out dough and add as much meat as you’d like. I used mexican spiced turkey deli and, after I added that, I added a sprinkle of pumpkin spice to really finish off those incredible seasonal flavors. Fold the dough over and press it down with a fork to seal in all that gooey goodness. Egg wash on top for that beautiful golden glow and bake on 350°F for around 15 minutes until browned slightly. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. These are beautiful and perfect for the holiday season! I also made these in rugalach form. Cut one square into 3 strips and add the sauce to it. Place the pineapple chunks on one side and add a few pieces of turkey, as well. Roll the dough strip, egg wash that bad boy and heat ’em up! These happen to be prettier, but the other version has a really good bite to it. Happy Holidays!
