"So easy and so good, why would anyone eat cranberry sauce out of a can?"

"I never really liked cranberry sauce until I tried this recipe from scratch... It has the perfect amount of sweetness."

"I have always hated cranberry sauce from a can. It tastes good but bad texture and looks rather unappealing. This recipe was so fast, easy, and inexpensive I can't imagine why anyone would ever buy canned cranberry sauce again. My entire family loved this, it was so good! It had a great texture with some cranberries still slightly intact, overall delicious!"

"So simple to make and very tasty. There is a hint of raspberry and it's not too sweet like so many store bought varieties."

"I made this recipe and took it to our family Thanksgiving celebration. Everyone liked it but my 92 year old grandma thought it was too sweet. Maybe she likes the cranberries a little more tart. I thought they were a perfect blend. It did not coagulate like I thought it would, but here is what I did with the leftovers. 1. We had breakfast for supper tonight. I made waffles and placed the cranberry sauce on the waffles with some home made cinnamon whipped cream. 2. I made kolache's (my other grandmother's no fail recipe!) I used the cranberry sauce for the filling. YUMMO! I was able to place one berry and some of the sauce in each kolache. I can't wait for my dad to try them tomorrow. Maybe not the same as Grandmas, but the dough definately brings her back to me! I will make this recipe many times now that I have found my favorite."
