Which is great because we all want more simple recipes when it comes to the holidays, right? I know I do. After preparing and cooking tons of sides, I never feel like spending a lot of time making appetizers. For example, this year was my first year hosting Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving eve, I prepared the side dishes for our feast. None of them were super simple to make and I felt like I was going to die after being on my feet all day. Thanksgiving day dinner was served early so I didn’t have to serve appetizers to my guests but if I had too, I would have made something easy like cheese and crackers. Or this cranberry pear flatbread.

Sort of off topic but every time I attempted to type “cranberry pear flatbread”, I typed “cranberry pear tart.” Do you ever do stuff like that? I must have tarts on my mind. Maybe I will dream about tarts tonight. Maybe I need to make a cranberry tart. Mmmm. Cranberry tart.

For now, I’ll enjoy this cranberry pear flatbread.

Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 4 mini naan*
  • 4 tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 6 tbsp cranberry sauce*
  • 1 pear, halved, cored and sliced thin
  • Caramel sauce for drizzling
Instructions
  1. Spread 1 tbsp of mascarpone cheese on each naan.
  2. Spoon 1½ tbsp of cranberry sauce over the mascarpone cheese on each naan and spread to evenly distribute.
  3. Top each naan with 4-5 sliced pears.
  4. Drizzle with caramel sauce.
Notes
If you're unable to find mini naan, use two regular sized naan and adjust the measurements for each accordingly. For example, use 2 tbsp mascarpone cheese, 3 tbsp, 10 pear slices for each regular sized naan.

I followed this recipe for homemade cranberry sauce but you're welcome to use store-bought or leftover cranberry sauce in place of the homemade sauce.
