I've been making Pecan Cranberry Spread for years and love it. This is very similar, but a good alternative if you'd like a prettier presentation. I also like how this recipe uses orange zest, which I usually have on hand, rather than O.J. concentrate. I usually just use the zest of an average navel orange rather than measuring. The only change I made was to use 1/2 cup chopped cranberries because I love them. An excellent addition to any holiday brunch or cocktail party.
