These were delicious. I took them to a holiday party and got raves. At 19 minutes baking time, they were just the slightest bit runny still in the center.

You can't eat just one, SO good... I doubled the brandy, and used the zest and juice of a whole orange. As another reviewer suggested I heated the dried chopped cranberries in the OJ, zest and brandy and let them sit for about 30 minutes while I rolled out the pastry and cut to fit in the bottoms of a muffin sheet. The cranberries absorbed the liquid by the time I added the rest of the ingredients. As well I used frozen cranberries on the top, not fresh as I had them in the freezer.... Not a really strong flavour when you first bite into one, but by the time you are finished, you just want another!

Turns out great! But instead of using brandy i boiled the cranberries in fresh squeezed orange juice to make a more concentrated cranberry flavor and still add the half of orange juice to the mix. It was amazing defiantly using at my retreat center for the women to enjoy!
