I made this for an appetizer at a dinner party. I made as directed with sherry. It received mixed reviews. I think I might enjoy it better as a bagel spread for breakfast/brunch. Next time I might try soaking the dried cranberries in the apple juice before combining with the other ingredients. For a breakfast spread I might eliminate/reduce the swiss cheese and add some cinnamon or nutmeg.

This recipe got mixed reviews at my Christmas party. A few people really just didn't like it, I liked it but didn't love it and several people walked away with the recipe raving about it! I think if you love pineapple and like it warm, this recipe will go over well b/c that seemed to be the most prominent flavor. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
