You could serve this butter sauce on cardboard and you'd think you were having a gourmet dessert.
But it'll be even better with the cranberry cake.
Cranberries say "holidays" to me. The beautiful red color and the tangy burst of flavor are a great alternative to pumpkin desserts this time of year.
I personally love pumpkin, but one of my sisters doesn't. From November through December, she often goes to meetings where the dessert of choice prominently features pumpkin. That's a great weight-loss plan at this time of year when the temptations are as plentiful as the proverbial "sugar plums dancing in your head."
When it's my turn to bring dessert to a gathering during the holiday season, I figure there may be one or two other people who join Lisa in the anti-pumpkin campaign. This is one of those desserts that still says "Merry Christmas."
