  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice fresh squeezed is best
  • 12 ounces butter
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until thoroughly mixed. Chill until serving.

Recipe Tips for the Cook

Serve with hot rolls, toast, crackers, etc.
If a lighter-flavored cranberry taste is desired, use one more stick of butter and process a little longer. 
If you want a smaller batch, just divide it into thirds and make the smaller batch.
It does freeze well.
