Tart cranberry flavor blends nicely with mustard and horseradish in this out-of-the-ordinary cracker spread. It's quick to fix, too. —Marie Hattrup, Sparks, Nevada

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2013

This was a great appetizer for Thanksgiving. I put the block of cream cheese on a serving plate and poured the sauce over. People could spread it on the crackers themselves. I also doubled the cranberries, sugars and water. I used half for this appetizer and the other half as cranberry sauce with our turkey .

Great with the cream cheese, but try as a condiment to turkey, chicken, or pork! Oh my goodness! Could be used as sort of a 'barbeque' sauce.

I made this around Thanksgiving and it disappeared. I made it with only a tablespoon of horseradish the first time, extra hot, but when I made it the second time I used 2, and the flavor was amazing. Just the right balance of sweet and spice Love it!!!!
