Nutty Cranberry Goodin’ Puddin’

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The recipe for Cranberry Goodin Puddin originally came from Gramma Von Hofe’s collection of cranberry recipes about 30 years ago. We’ve always loved it and made it for the holidays.

As recipes do, this year it morphed into a deeee-lish nut-rich dessert. Those of you who love the original cranberry goodin puddin will find this version less sweet, more cake-like, less gooey, and denser.
