Some of you may be thinking, “But I LIKE the canned cranberry sauce.” It’s time to say goodbye to the congealed – canned sauce and hello to fresh cranberry goodness. Plus, this recipe is almost as easy as opening the can.


No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Mini Trifles 

What’s better than No Bake? Plus, you probably have most if not all of the ingredients to make your own pumpkin spice. You can even make this recipe the day before. However, it does need to refrigerate at a minimum of 3 hours. The last part of the recipe includes instructions on how to make brittle to garnish the trifles. If that’s not your jam, then top with a ginger cookie half or crumbles.
