Cranberry and almond flavoring are wonderful together, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oh yum! Tender and slightly sweet, we adored this quick bread recipe. It's tart from the cranberries, but a little sweet from the almond extract. The flavor of the almonds is subtle put pairs surprisingly well with the cranberries. Plus, it's so very simple to make. Make it in a large loaf or as mini loaves as Linda suggests. They'd be great for a fall bake sale or as a hostess gift during the holidays. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
