If you are traveling to a friend's or loved one's for the holidays, bring them something even better than a bottle of wine—this easy to whip up treat! —Arisa Cupp, Sherwood, Oregon


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a small bowl, beat all ingredients until blended. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Try these variations on dried cranberries with orange zest: dried cherries with lime zest, and dried blueberries with lemon zest.
  • If you replace the honey with maple syrup, this pairs perfectly with a stack of fluffy pancakes.
