If you are looking for a last minute, day-before "fluff" dish to take to a dinner, or to make for your own, here is a super easy dish:
2 (12 ounce) packages fresh cranberries
1 cup white sugar
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
7 ounces miniature marshmallows (these can even be optional!)
Whip the cream until stiff. Add the pineapple and nuts to the cranberries, mix well. Fold in whipped cream and marshmallows; refrigerate until ready to serve. You can even serve this slightly frozen and it's yummy!
And if you are not a "fluff" dish person, check out this new recipe I found at Kraft Foods:
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, in juice
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) raspberry flavor gelatin
1 can (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
2/3 cup walnut pieces (optional)
1 apple, chopped
Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough water to juice to measure 2-1/2 cups; pour into saucepan. Bring to boil. Pour over gelatin mixes in large bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved.
Stir in pineapple, cranberry sauce, nuts and apple. Spoon into 24 paper-lined 2-1/2-inch muffin cups. Refrigerate 2-1/2 hours or until firm. Remove liners.
I will be back tomorrow with some fun stuff and some news! Hope to see you then!
