1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen
6 large shallots, peeled and sliced ¼ “thick
¼ cup Olive Oil
1 tsp salt

Heat oven to 425°. Lightly oil rimmed ½ sheet pan. In a large bowl, toss together the apples, cranberries, shallots, ¼ cup of olive oil, salt, pepper and a few sprigs of thyme.
Spread on baking sheet and roast, tossing occasionally, until tender and golden, about 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Thaw Croissant Sheets until just pliable and roll out slightly to fit into ½ sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Scatter Apple Cranberry filling over Croissant dough. Scatter blue cheese crumbles on top.
Set aside, covered, to proof slightly, about 30-45 minutes.
Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with flake salt or coarse sea salt and black pepper.
Bake in pre-heated convection oven at 400° for 18-25 minutes until golden brown and cheese is just melted.
Cool slightly and cut into squares. Garnish with fresh thyme.
Bon appétit from Vie de France!
