A jewel-tone cranberry and apricot filling is spiked with rum and baked in puff pastry shells to make these attractive holiday desserts.
1. In saucepan, combine cranberries, apricots, raisins, sugar, rum and salt. Bring to boiling; boil, stirring occasionally, until thickened and cranberries pop, 6 minutes. Scrape into a large bowl. Refrigerate until room temperature, about 15 minutes.
2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
3. Open pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 4 equal pieces. Coat 8 standard-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Gently press middle of 1 pastry square into bottom and up side of muffin cup. Repeat with other squares. Fill each cup with level 1/4 cup filling. Fold pastry over tops.
4. Bake in 400 degrees F oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool in cups on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove puffs from cups to rack; cool 5 minutes. Dust with sugar. Serve warm.
