I found this recipe last week on another web site and being the cranberry lover that I am, I knew I had to make it for Thanksgiving. It was delicious and very well received.

How to Make Creamy Cranberry Salad - Steph


  1. Process cranberries in blender or food processor (I use a small electric chopper); pour sugar over cranberries and stir to dissolve.
  2. Bring 3/4 cup water to a boil; stir in gelatin and let cool. Stir cooled gelatin into cranberries; add pineapple, orange juice; apple and pecans. Mix well; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Whip cream and beat in cream cheese. In a glass serving dish, layer half of the cranberry mixture, then the whipped cream mixture, then the remaining cranberry mixture. This makes a festive looking presentation. I would even consider adding orange zest or mandarin oranges to this recipe. I used Cherry jello as my grocer didn't have cranberry but I would probably use Cranberry or Raspberry over the Cherry. ENJOY!
