Baked Cheesy Cranberry Dip

(hey! this recipe is awesome but don’t miss the giveaway at the end of the post!)


3 awesome ingredients take a dip in the pool together:


white cheddar

cream cheese

fresh whole cranberries


a match made in flavor heaven




This recipe is too easy not to try.


The hardest part is finding fresh cranberries before October for off-season cravings.






Can you grate cheese?


Can you mix cream cheese and grated cheese- and fold in the cranberries without breaking all of them? Then put it in the oven and set the timer?


Actually, I take it back.




The most difficult part of this recipe is letting it cool down


from the bubbling beauty that comes out of the oven


to non-mouth-burning holiday goodness.




Don’t forget the fresh baguette like I did. The root veggie chips tried but weren’t the same.


Take this to your Thanksgiving gathering. be prepared for that look saying: this is amazing! …you made this?
