This is my favorite holiday dessert. I make it at Thanksgiving and usually at Christmas and, in attempts to keep it special, pretty much don't make it the rest of the year. But it is delicious and really can be made anytime and it is really easy.
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 c. raw cranberries (truthfully I'm not really sure what "raw" means, I just use fresh and/or frozen cranberries)
Cream butter and sugar. Add milk and mix. Add dry ingredients and mix. Add cranberries and mix. Pour into a buttered and floured dish and bake at 375* for 30 minutes.
Vanilla Cream Sauce
1 stick butter
1/2 c. cream
In a double boiler cook all ingredients except cream until sugar dissolves. Add cream and spoon over individual servings.
