Rosemary Cranberry Spread

Sharing is caring!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I wanted to share this delicious and easy recipe for Rosemary Cranberry Spread that I made. It was such a hit!

Rosemary Cranberry Spread recipe

I was in charge of bringing the appetizers for Thanksgiving and I was in luck because the week before Thanksgiving I did an appetizer round-up. There were so many appetizers that looked delicious but I had to narrow it down. I decided to try the cranberry rosemary spread & boy was I happy I did (and I am not the only one).

This spread was a hit and between the six of us at Thanksgiving, we ate the whole thing. I served it with a variety of crackers I picked up at Trader Joes but you could use pita bread or chips, crackers, bread or whatever you fancy.

I also think this Rosemary Cranberry Spread would be a beautiful addition to an upcoming holiday party or dinner and add a little red and green to the table.

Yeah! I hope you guys like it. It was gone pretty fast at Thanksgiving! I just saw your pasta recipe & it looks so yummy. My husband is a big bacon fan so I might have to try that one out sometime.

Ooh, I love this! So festive with the cranberries. :) I bet it would be good on a bagel or even on apples too!

Oh good idea! Apples would be delicious! I have also thought about doing half cream cheese & half Greek yogurt to make it healthier. We'll see how it comes out.
