Delicious! I made this for Thanksgiving, but didn't have a pretty container to serve it out of. I put the butter in my decorator kit and used the biggest tip to make individual servings. There is a great balance of tart and sweet to this butter that was wonderful on warm dinner rolls. Quick and easy to make - and would be great on a scone. Thanks Booksie B for sharing your recipe. I'm making up another batch just to have at our house.

This was fantastic; the slightly tart cranberries provided a nice balance to the sweet flavors. I served it at brunch with scones and muffins and received a lot of compliments. Thanks for sharing Booksie B, I will use this recipe often!

Everyone loved this! We used it on French bread at a dinner party and everyone on loved it. The left over we used it on pancakes the next day and it was great. Thanks.

This is a wonderful toast spread. Make sure you really cream the butter first, then add the sugar and cream again, before you add the chopped hydrated cranberries. Make sure the cranberries are cooled, too. I've made this hurriedly and regretted it. The warm cranberries made the butter separate and not look good. When done carefully, this is pretty and scrumptious enough for gift giving with a loaf of fresh bread.
