I made this over the holidays and when I first put it together I was very impressed as I thought the presentation was great and that it was something different, it looked very pretty on the frosted christmas platter I put it on. It had a great taste,hubby said with his first bite that it tasted like cherry cheesecake. I take stars away because mine ended up runny???? and I am unsure as to whether I would try it again or not. Maybe if the cream cheese layer was refrigerated first for a few hours before adding the topping or maybe the whole thing needed to be chilled longer, maybe even overnight? Unless I overmixed the cranberries prior to spreading?? Again, it tasted good but the consistency did not come out quite right for me.
