  1. Absolutely & without a doubt, this is a great & wonderful spread, but then, I do love cranberries! So easy to make & an delight to have on the table! I look forward to making this, maybe mixed with my own cranberry sauce recipe, but however it's done, I'll have it out for guests to enjoy the next time I host one of my monthly meetings! A keeper recipe, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
  2. This dip was fantastic at a party I had. I made it with recipe #42609 instead of canned cranberry sauce and served with Ritz and 5-seed crackers. I thought this was better with the Ritz, but several of my guests couldn't get enough of it with the seeded crackers. This is a great dip to make in the fall and was very easy. I couldn't get all the tiny lumps of cream cheese beaten out (I used a whisk because my beaters were dirty) but it was totally unnoticeable once I put the cranberry sauce over the top. This recipe even passed the "picky 5-year old" test! Thanks for posting this recipe!
  3. I thought this was just ok. I mixed it in my food processor because I couldn't find my hand mixer, and it got pretty liquidy. Perhaps it would have achieved more stars if I had not pulverized it in the food processer. I put homemade cranberry sauce on top as recommended by another reviewer. The whole thing was a bit too sweet for me.


Cooking has pretty much always been my passion. I really consider it a hobby rather than a chore. Any day I can spending in the kitchen is a happy one.
