I just discovered a few years ago how much I LOVE cranberries. The only thing I knew about them growing up was that they were the mushy stuff in the can that you literally dump into a bowl on Thanksgiving day–YUCK! Of course, no one eats fresh cranberries out the bag, either….weird. And cranberry juice? Too sour for me. But cranberries in BAKING???? Absolute heaven to me. Something about the texture and the sweetness are pure delights. AND, I tried REAL cranberry sauce a few years back…yeah, it’s delicious, no more canned stuff for me.

I’ve got 2 recipes on my site with cranberries as the star.  You’ll have to spot them below with your keen vision.  I wanted to round up a good handful of 21 delightful cranberry recipes, for some eye candy, as well as inspiration for your holiday baking.  PIN this and save it for later, but who says you can’t eat cranberries in October? Not me, I would never say such a thing.

Scroll on down, and enjoy…all of these pictures are purely mouth watering to me. 21 delightful cranberry recipes for the holiday season. Cranberries are perfect for your Thanksgiving and Christmas meals!

  1. I love all things cranberry and can’t decide which one of these to try first! Thanks for including my Turkey Cranberry Quesadillas!

  2. Wish I could get fresh cranberries on this side of the world…fortunately we get dried ones and very occasionally we get frozen ones so I do use them for baking.
