My Top 7 Recipes using Cranberries
Check out my favorite cranberry recipes: everything from zesty cocktails to plump breakfast muffins
1. Jammy Cranberry Moscow Mule
Add vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice and cranberry sauce or jam to a Moscow mule mug, top with spicy ginger beer and you have the ultimate holiday cocktail. Click HERE for the recipe.
2. Gluten-Free Cranberry Curd Tart
The best thing about this tart is the fool-proof almond flour crust. I have made it dozens of times. I tested so many other pastry crusts, but this one takes the “cake”. The filling is a bright tart cranberry curd made of butter, egg yolk, sugar and cornstarch. It is so stunning everyone will ask for the recipe. Click HERE for tart yumminess.
3. Cranberry Kir Royale Champagne Cocktail
What could be more elegant than a sugar rimmed tall glass of cold champagne, a splash of Chambord and festive raspberries and cranberries coated in dazzling white sugar? Beautiful- the most sophisticated holiday cocktail. Serve in your finest crystal. Click HERE for the recipe.
4. The Very Best Tipsy Cranberry Sauce
Packed with nuts, citrus, cinnamon and fresh cranberries PLUS a splash ( or two ) of French Brandy, my cranberry sauce cooks up in minutes and will be the jewel of your holiday table. Make extra batches for food gifts. Click HERE for the simple recipe.
5. Orange & Cranberry Muffins with Walnut Crumble
Definitely make a batch to share and a batch to devour. Packed with citrus zest, cranberries (take the five minutes to slice the berries in half- it make a big difference) and loaded with a buttery walnut topping, your family will ask for these muffins over and over again.

6. Big Sky Granola
My kids could eat a barrel of this granola. When they come into town for the holidays, I better have a huge jar of this granola or else there will be trouble. Serve on top of ice cream, over a bowl of yogurt with fresh berries or just simply as a breakfast cereal. Pack for hiking or as a snack to give you a little energy on the slopes.
7. Roasted Brussels Sprout, Pecans and Squash
This is a healthy’ish side dish I love to serve all fall and winter. I use delicata and butternut squash, sliced Brussels sprouts and loads of pecans and cranberries for a sweet and sour taste explosion. Click HERE for the recipe.
