To make 32 Cranberry Cheddar Pita Bites, place one oven rack in upper position and one in the center position. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with foil.
Cut each pita bread into eight 2-inch rounds with a biscuit or cookie cutter and split each round in two. Arrange on baking sheet and bake on center rack for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crisp and toasted.
Adjust heat to broil. Top each toasted pita round with ½ teaspoon whole berry cranberry sauce (or chutney) and top with grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Horseradish Cheddar dividing it evenly among the pita rounds.
Broil, carefully monitoring and rotating as necessary, for 30 seconds to 3 minutes, or until cheese is evenly melted. Cool slightly before serving.
