The Best Cranberry Recipes: 21 Cranberry Desserts

By: Danielle Zimmerman, Editor,

Cranberry Sauce Upside-Down CakeOne of the best flavors of the fall (and even winter) season is cranberry. Cranberry dessert recipes are perfectly sweet and have just the right amount of tartness. Not only are they comforting and perfectly suited for the crisp fall and winter weather, but recipes with cranberries are also perfect for serving at two of the most important holidays of the year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cranberries just have such a festive flavor that translates so well to the treats on your dessert table. The tart taste of cranberries can also bring a welcome reprieve after eating a heavy and rich meal. You and your guests will love trying candy, muffins, and more that feature cranberries.


The Best Cranberry Recipes: 21 Cranberry Desserts is a collection of all of the most delicious treats that feature the tasty fruit. Whether they're fresh cranberry recipes or recipes that use frozen cranberries, each one of these desserts is delicious.
