Recipe by katie in the UP

Another recipe for our Tree Trimming party!

Top Review by DoubletheGarlic

This recipe is so pretty, tart and lovely! We really enjoyed it served warm with ice cream. Don't be tempted to do what I did and bake it in a Bundt pan, though!! Esp. with my 15ou of cranberries and 1 cup of almonds, it completely broke apart (see photo :-). But I would definitely make this again ... Katie's way!!

[Note - stick to 12ou of berries, but I wd def. recommend an increase of almond slivers. Also, for almond extract, I used a whole vial of Dr. Oetker's Bitter-Almond Oil (.14 fl.oz.). Divine!!]
