cranberry cream cheese sandwich

Recipe by

This simple little sandwich is delicious, easy, nutritious and filling. * Marble Rye (I use Pepperidge Farm) is my favorite but you can use any rye or pumpernickel bread. * I usually use canned cranberry sauce (either whole berry or jellied) and homemade sauce also works well. The cream cheese needs to be softened to room temp to be spreadable (or use spreadable.) This sandwich can be made the night before, wrapped or sealed in a sandwich box and then served cold or room temp the next day. A great lunch box sandwich. Any jam/jelly/preserve/marmalade may be substituted for the cranberry sauce.
