This moist cake smothered with rich cream cheese frosting makes any dinner festive. Every autumn, I go to a cranberry festival in Wisconsin and load up on fresh cranberries to freeze for year-round cooking. —Nellie Runne, Rockford, Illinois
I was given this recipe at a bridal shower our rural farming community held for me. It's become my all-time favorite salad. The color and tang the berries add to the lovely mix make it perfect for company or just my husband and me.
These flavorful buffet sandwiches are so fun and festive. Smoked turkey slices are layered inside tender biscuits flecked with dried cranberries and spread with a creamy cranberry butter.

"A fellow stay-at-home mom gave me this recipe so we could enjoy our latte breaks more affordably with homemade biscotti," says Evelyn Bethards Wohlers of Columbia, Maryland. "I modified the original version by using a sugar substitute and reducing the carbohydrates and fat. Tangy dried cranberries and spices give it delicious flavor."
