Delicious and very pretty for holiday table. I added a can of mandarin oranges and pineapple tidbits which I had drained for 12 hours and a cup of marshmallows. Next time will reduce conf. sugar as it was quite sweet. Read More

I loved the concept of the ingredients but found that I needed 2 cans of the whole cranberry sauce or else half of the other ingredients to get the full cranberry taste. Maybe the brand of sauce that I used didn't have enough berries but with another can it is very good. Read More

Delightful! I get lots of complements on this. This year I trimmed the edge of the bowl with sliced canned cranberry sauce so it looked like a petals on a flower. It looked pretty and the die hard cranberry sauce people were happy to have that to go with their turkey as well. Read More

My grandma used to make this every Christmas and Thanksgiving. I made it for the first time for Thanksgiving this year and it was a big hit. However I omit the mayo. It's not as shiny looking or as rich without it but it is also lighter fluffier and slightly sweeter. I also double the whipped cream and use one 8 oz. can of whole berry and one 8 oz. can of jellied cranberry sauce. Read More

This has a pretty good flavor. The cream cheese needs thinned slightly. Read More
