A cranberry and ice cream blend is topped with whipped cream and served in a graham cracker crust. You'll have dreams about this wonderful dessert long after Thanksgiving!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 (6 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin
- 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
- 1/2 cup heavy cream

Heat the cranberry juice in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in strawberry flavored gelatin until dissolved. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer to a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until fluffy.
In a blender or food processor, finely chop the whole cranberry sauce. Mix in the gelatin mixture and vanilla ice cream until well blended.
Transfer blended mixture to the prepared graham cracker crust. Chill in the refrigerator 2 to 3 hours.
