    What desserts can be made with Jellied Cranberry Sauce?

    I don't like the taste of whole cranberries, but I love jellied cranberry sauce.

    I would like to make some things for the holidays for my kids with the jellied cranberry sauce, but have only found recipes I'm not too thrilled to make.

    Anybody have recipes for desserts made with jellied cranberry sauce?




    Thanks,

    Nefertete

    Thanks, yet again, for the recipes. Unfortunately, I'm highly allergic to peanuts. But, I copied the other recipe. Looks good.

    Yep, swquilts, I did check out the Ocean Spray website. They don't seem to have too much at all that can be made with the jellied cranberry sauce. Most of what is offered on websites calls for the whole cranberry.

    Thanks!!

    how about these?

    Cranberry Crunch Squares

    " Tangy, tart, sweet cranberries topped with oats and brown sugar. "

    Ingredients
    1 (16 ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce
    2 1/3 cups rolled oats
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 5/8 cups packed brown sugar
    1 cup butter, melted


    Directions

    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2 Combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and butter. Stir until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spread the cranberries into the bottom of one 9x13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle crumb mixture over top.
    3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

    editing:
    I think this would be really messy without a bottom crust. Sure enough, I looked at some of the reviews for this and found this great suggestion: these hold together MUCH better if you press half the oat mixture into the pan first, and put the cranberry in the middle. Very tasty. Scale to 2/3, and it fits very nicely into an 8 inch square pan.

    I got that one earlier today, and it looks good. What I like about it is the use of the oatmeal. I love cooking with oatmeal. I'm gonna be making some oatmeal pie crusts, oatmeal bread, and some cakes with oatmeal soon. I fell in love with the Quaker website. Oatmeal does things to a dish that nothing else seems to be able to.
    It's a hearty, flavorful flour, and as an addition to other recipes, it seems to add a chewiness that doesn't interefere with the featured flavors.
