Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is such a classic Thanksgiving dish. I almost feel silly posting this recipe, since it just came from the Ocean Spray website, but since we love it so much, I decided it was blog-worthy. This is the only recipe I make and it always gets rave reviews. And it’s so easy, there’s no excuse for eating cranberry sauce from a can.

You’ll notice that I took down all the pinkness from my blog today. I’ve also got some fall favorites on my side bar and brought back my header from August, so be sure to stop by if you’re reading through a reader to check it out!

    I’ve had fruit hand pies on my to-bake list as well. I haven’t spotted a strawberry version until now, and these look very tasty! 9 1/2 cups of flour for the dough? Wow!

    Sherry – Alton Brown gives all his recipes in ounces. So as the recipe states, it’s 9 1/2 ounces of flour, which is about 2 cups.
