This sounds delicious! I found this recipe while looking for recipes that used cranberries tonight. I found this @ from the Massachusetts Cranberry Harvest Festival Recipes 1998, Second Place Leslie A. Killian. I haven't made this yet, but I'm keeping it here for everyone to enjoy! I did include the freezing time as part of the cook time.
