I created this recipe because I had fresh cranberries left over from Thanksgiving and did not want them to spoil. I had never made my new concoction before, but was pretty confident that it would work out. I was right, and my husband really loved the nice serving that I made for him with his favorite vanilla ice cream. I too was impressed with the tart flavors of the cranberries combined with the spices, and the crunchy nutty topping sent this dish over the top. I will be making it again real soon, and I used splenda in parts of the recipe to make it lower in sugar. Just amazing & quite tasty.
