    PanNan's Note:

    My mother got this recipe from a dear family friend in the 1950's. No matter who in our family is making Thanksgiving dinner, you can bet this dish will be served. Note: the times indicated do not include refrigeration time. Cranberries from Wisconsin make this a Midwest U.S. regional recipe. (Also, I first enjoyed it in Missour - another fine Midwestern state).

      This is incredible. But I am one of those people that love FLUFF! I never had it as a child and now eat huge portions whenever anyone brings it to a potluck. This was so good. I will definately make this again. Thanks!
