Aunt Annie's Cranberry Dessert

Posted by Tara

This recipe comes from Seth's Aubt Annie. Aunt Annie has the best smile and most infectious laugh! Every Thanksgiving I look forward to this dessert. It's really simple to make and the perfect side on your Thanksgiving plate.
Here is what you'll need: 
1 large box of red Jelllo
1 orange
1 cup sugar 
1 cup crushed walnuts
1 package of cranberries
1 8-oz cream cheese
2 tubs of Cool Whip

In a blender grind together cranberries, orange, nuts, and sugar. It will be a very thick consistency. 
You will make your Jello like usual except instead of 2 cups of cold water use only 1 cup of cold water. Once the jello is ready, pour the thick cranberry mixture in the pan and stir till completely mixed together. 
Put in fridge for close to 24 hours. I didn't let mine store in the fridge long enough so it wasn't as thick as I needed, but tasted just as good.
After it has firmed up, blend together cream cheese and cool whip. Make sure you let your cream cheese come to room tempature before blending. 

After you blend till smooth pour on top of jello and smooth out. 

Top with chopped nuts. 


Enjoy this Thanksgiving dish this holiday season!

This dessert sounds so good! Just to clarify, the recipe calls for the whole orange, peel and all, to go in the blender, right?
