Pssssst…  Christmas is coming!!!!!!!!!  I know, Thanksgiving is not even here yet and off I go.  But there were cranberries at the store!  And the raspberries looked really good at Costco…  And next thing you know I may have “accidentally” made some Festive Cranberry Dip!  Whoopsie!  Besides, this would be great at Thanksgiving too!  So there.

This is a great recipe to keep in your pocket for a simple treat.  No baking.  Only a few ingredients.  And it just looks so pretty!  I actually made a batch of the cranberry sauce and stocked it in my freezer for the holiday season.  I keep a store of cream cheese in the fridge and presto – entertaining food in a hurry!

Tools In This Post:  If you enjoy hosting people for the holiday season I suggest owning several nice white serving bowls.  You can put pretty much anything in them and they look great.  Hosting managed!  Having some basic white serving dishes is a must in my kitchen year round.
