"Absolutely delicious! I've started the tradition of at least one new recipe every Thanksgiving and this was the one for this year's meal. Everyone from youngest to oldest loved it, even those who didn't think they liked cranberries! I did use real whipped cream. My grandsons asked to take the leftovers home with them and my daughter called the next day to say it was all gone and they were asking for more! Now that's a recipe endorsement for sure!"
