Why limit yourself to eating cranberries during Thanksgiving? Enjoy them all winter long in some of my favorite cranberry cakes, bread, cookies, and cocktails.
Once the weather turns cool, cranberries not only pop up at the grocery store but in most all of my Fall and Winter baking. The tartness works well in sweet and savory recipes but my preference is of course a sweet treat. Cookies, bread, cakes and cocktails. Today I am sharing some of my favorite cranberry recipes that I have shared on Pinecones & Acorns over the years and that I turn to year after year.
All of these cranberry recipes are easy to make and would be a wonderful addition to your holiday brunches, parties and holiday gatherings.
