Cranberry Cream Cheese Frozen Pie

Pat Duran


This is a great make ahead recipe- an all time favorite of mine- which I like to serve at Thanksgiving- but have used it at Easter several times..Always a refreshing and light tasting dessert after a big meal.
Again other fruit (pie filling) can be used.
