“Found this on and made it last year for Thanksgiving. I got lots of comments on how good it was so I'm making it again this year. Thank you to the reviewer who gave me the true name of this dish.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs cranberries
  • 1 14-2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 14 lb soda cracker, crushed
  • 1 pint whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  1. Combine water and 1 1/4-2 cups of sugar depending on taste in a saucepan and heat until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries and cook until cranberries split. Set aside to cool.
  2. Whip the cream and 2 tablespoons of sugar until it turns into whipped cream.
  3. Using a glass bowl, put a layer of cranberries in the bottom of bowl. Layer soda crackers to cover well over the cranberries, then a layer of whipped cream. Start over with cranberries, crackers and cream until bowl is full, ending with the cream. A little spoon of cranberries on the top looks nice.
