Turkey Apricot Cranberry Tarts

Serves: 18 tarts


Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes



  • 400 g ground turkey
  • ½ cup yellow onion, finely grated
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup dried apricots, cut into 1-cm cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground all spice
  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • ½ cup flour, for rolling out puff pastry sheets
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley, for garnish



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Add the ground turkey, grated onion, cranberries, apricots, salt, pepper and spices to a large mixing bowl. Mix all the ingredients together until combined.
  3. Sprinkle some flour on a clean work surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the puff pastry into a 12×12 inch square.
  4. Use a 4-inch round cookie cutter to cut out 9 circles of puff pastry per sheet. This will give you 18 tarts.
  5. Beat the egg and the 1 tablespoon of water together in a small bowl to create an egg wash.
  6. Add 1 heaping tablespoon of the turkey mixture to the centre of each puff pastry round and press down so that the turkey mixture is 1 cm thick. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg wash on the edges of the puff pastry and pinch the sides together to seal.
  7. Transfer the assembled tart to a parchment-lined baking sheet and continue the process for the rest of the tarts, making sure to space them at least 1 inch apart from each other.
  8. Brush the edges of the tarts with the egg wash to create a golden finish then bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Transfer the warm tarts to a serving platter and garnish with some chopped parsley. Enjoy!
