Cranberry-Apple Tarts Recipe

In my family, cranberry-apple tarts are the go-to dessert for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every year we make a batch and it is gone within one to three days. They are THAT GOOD!!

I always use wild cranberries that we have picked near our family cabin. We are lucky to have so many cranberry bushes nearby. Sometimes we even eat the cranberries as we are picking them!

You can use store-bought cranberries for this recipe, but you may notice that those cranberries will make a slightly pinker tart filling.
