Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip



My Sister-in Law and I were talking about celebrations and she said that a colleague had given her this recipe at a party. I immediately thought of my after Christmas party and started thinking how delicious this would be on ham! My party is next week and I will add pics and a detailed report. In the mean time, take advantage of all the fresh cranberries in the stores now and make this!
