Sandy's Cranberry Coffee Cake
We have this every Christmas and Easter morning, as well as for company. I have given it as a gift when we are house guests as well.
Original recipe is a twist on my Mom's version. Fast and easy dessert, great for fall season when apples are freshest and the cranberries come in. I have made it without the apples or using frozen cranberries. I enjoy it as a dessert and as a breakfast treat around the Thanks-Mas season. Loaded with antioxidants! I have also made a wheat-free version using nut flour. Serve plain or topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of heavy cream.
15 Cranberry Cakes Bursting With Holiday Flavor
From cranberry upside-down cakes to cranberry breakfast cakes and even decadent cranberry cheesecakes, these cranberry cakes are worthy of your holiday dessert spread.
This will make an excellent desert for the holidays. Give them cranberries in a whole new way. I don't know how anyone can't love this dish. I was going make a Martha Stewart Cherry Clafouti, but the grocery store was out of cherries. I also needed cherry liquor, but the liquor store was closed. I did have cranberries and Grand Marnier which sounded really good. I was right on the money. It's fantastic, probably better than the cherry version. The cranberries add a nice tartness to the dish. I hope you like it.
Buttery Cranberry Pie
Great for the holidays- once you serve this pie, everyone wants seconds! Try a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top while still warm. MMMM!
Cranberry Bread Pudding
Cranberries and raisins are folded into a sweet bread pudding batter for a homey dessert. This makes a great breakfast strata, too!
Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
The red and green make a great Christmas cookie. Have used other nuts instead of pistachios with success. If your pistachios are salted, omit the 1/4 teaspoon salt from the recipe.
Cranberry Orange Cookies
A nice thing to have around during the holidays, but don't expect them to stay around long. These orange-flavored cranberry cookies are tart and delicious, not to mention beautiful. Not really a favorite of kids.
Cranberry Upside-Down Sour Cream Cake
I received this recipe a couple of years ago from a friend and get rave reviews from everyone each time I prepare it. It is not only delicious, but very pretty for a holiday table. Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Caramel Apple Cranberry Pie
I wanted a pie that combined the best-loved flavors of the season: apples, cranberries, cinnamon, and nutmeg! We had 5 different types of pie this Thanksgiving, and this pie received the most compliments. It was so good, I'm seriously thinking about entering it in our county fair this summer!
