Layered Cranberry Mousse Mold

Pat Duran


This is a elegant looking recipe by Kraft Foods and my family and I love it- we had it for dinner yesterday and then we snacked on it later -needless to say there is only a wee bit left. It is low in calories and fat.
Quick and easy- great for the winter holidays too!
Tastes so good sliding down onto your tongue! Mmmmm.
