However, leftovers are terrific and easy to come by since not many appreciate the garnet-hued side as much as I do.
It's delicious straight out of the container as a sweet snack but this year we have so many leftovers and I want to make sure I don't forget it. So I'm making fools and putting them in the freezer. Fools are like a layered sundae with cooked or pureed fruit and cream or custard. So good and I bet you have some spare whipped or heavy cream. You don't even have to be neat about it because it's just for you to sneak at night tucked under a blanket watching the breathtakingly corny White Christmas, marveling at Vera Ellen's incredible legs and suspending disbelief at the huge gap in ages between Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney.
Makes 3 large or 4 smaller
Leftover Cranberry Sauce Frozen Fool
1 cup cranberry sauce
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon powered sugar
Lidded jars (mine are 16oz - 8oz would be even better)
Whip cream and sugar together until peaks form. Alternately layer cranberries and whipped cream (about 2 tablespoons each at a time)in a jar, cover with plastic wrap and tight lid. Freeze until solid. Thaw 15 minutes before digging in.
