Orange Iced Cranberry Cream Cheese Tarts

1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 cup Sweet Orange Cranberry Sauce* see recipe below
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Zest of 1 orange, divided in half
1 egg
1 tbsp water
Crystal sugar, optional

1 cup vanilla frosting
Orange zest
1/2-1 tsp water

In a small bowl, stir together cream cheese and powdered sugar. When smooth, stir in half of the orange zest. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Set aside.

On a lightly floured board, roll dough to a square. Cut dough into 9 even squares.
Brush outer edges of each square with egg wash. Place a large teaspoon of cream cheese mixture in the center of each square, spreading to make a small square. Top with a large teaspoon of cranberry sauce on top.

Fold pastry in half to form a triangle, pressing edges to seal. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with crystal sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees, for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

In a small bowl stir frosting orange zest and water together, adding more water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.

Cool slightly, then drizzle with orange icing.
