Cranberry Pink Stuff Recipe : Step-by-Step Directions for a Holiday Dessert
Pink Stuff - A Holiday Recipe Tradition
My family enjoys celebrating holidays, especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. For each of these holidays, we get together at my parent's house where we enjoy a family meal.
The traditional dessert at these family gatherings is Pink Stuff. Originally, it was made by my great-aunt Olive. When she passed away, it was up to me to keep this tradition alive.
Pink Stuff is a light, delicious, sweet dessert. It can also be served as a side dish, or even as a left-over snack! The longer it is kept in the refrigerator, the better the flavor!
It's best to prepare Pink Stuff a couple of days before you plan to serve it. The longer it chills in your refrigerator, the better the flavors blend.
