    Here's a great way to use left over cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving. It features a cream cheese and cranberry fillings, a tender crust and a nutty crunch topping.


    • Crust:
    • 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
    • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
    • 3/4 Cup Butter, Cubed
    • Filling:
    • 8 Oz. Pkg. Reduced-Fat Cream Cheese, Softened
    • 14 Oz. Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
    • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
    • 2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
    • 1 Tbsp. Light Brown Sugar
    • 1 3/4 Cup Cranberry Sauce
    • Topping:
    • 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
    • 2 Tbsp. Light Brown Sugar
    • 1/4 Cup Butter, Cubed
    • 3/4 Cup Walnuts, Chopped


    1. For Crust: In a small bowl, combine flour and confectioners' sugar; cut in the butter until crumbly. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
    2. For Filling: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add milk and lemon juice. Pour over crust.
    3. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and brown sugar. Stir in the cranberry sauce until combined. Spoon over cream cheese layer.
    4. For Topping: Combine the flour and brown sugar in a bowl; cut in butter. Fold in walnuts. Sprinkle over filling.
    5. Bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours before cutting.
