Cranberry Cream Cheese Appetizer

"This is one of our favorites...easy to throw together for company. I've been making it for years, really can't remember how it originated. I promised this year...I wouldn't wait for the Christmas Holidays before I made it again."

    Great spread! I used homemade cranberry sauce. The flavors in the cream cheese base were very nice. Thanks for sharing!

    Everyone at Thanksgiving dinner enjoyed this. This recipe is a keeper. I made one slight change as to presentation: After mixing, I shaped the cheese into a ball, covered the mixing bowl, & placed it into the freezer just til hardened slightly. Then placed the ball into a piece of saran wrap shaping the ball into a slightly flattened round & refrig. Just before serving place some almonds on plate, then place cheese round on top of almonds, using the balance of the almonds cover entire cheese round. Then spoon on cranberries. Beautiful and delicious!
