You'll never go back to canned. – fresh cranberries ((about 2 bags)), sugar, dark brown sugar, orange or apple juice, mandarin oranges (drained) (or two cans if you like), lemon juice, vanilla, ground cinnamon, , In a 3-quart saucepan over high heat, bring all ingredients to a boil. Lower heat to maintain a simmer until the cranberries are tender. Use the backside of a wooden spoon to pop and stubborn cranberries.; ; – This cranberry sauce is, of course, the perfect accompaniment to the traditional American Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey dinner. But it's equally as delicious on ice cream, as the jam in a PB&J sandwich, on sourdough toast with cream cheese, in apple pie filling, and on a spoon.

Cream Cheese Apple Coffee Cake

Cream Cheese Apple Coffee Cake

Wow! This recipe will knock your socks off!  I try not to eat everything we serve in the store on Saturdays or else I’d be as big as a horse. I was actually able to hold off on this gem for two days before I tasted a bit (thank goodness for left-overs). Man, what a treat. It was so good I was thankful there was only one little tiny 2×2 inch square–I could have eaten an entire pan full!

The slight crunchiness of the streusel layer, the brightness of the apples (a bit tart and not over-sweet), the cheesecake-like layer–all of this combined into a single dessert well worth every calorie-filled bite! Seriously…make this today!
