By F&W Editors Posted October 14, 2016

They’re not just for Thanksgiving.

Cranberry sauce is a Thanksgiving staple, but it’s not the only great way to use the delicious red fruit. Here, nine excellent ways to use cranberries this season.

1. Cranberry Panna Cotta

Food & Wine:

Use buttermilk instead of cream for a healthier version of this easy, five-ingredient dessert.

2. Cranberry-Spice Cocktail

Food & Wine:

Hard cider and Aperol complement cranberries in this fun cocktail.

3. Cranberry-Glazed Pumpkin Pie

Food & Wine:

Store-bought gingersnaps make quick work of the crust for this festive pie.

4. Brown Butter-Cranberry Tart

Food & Wine:

Pastry chef Katherine Thompson’s holiday desert is a terrific cross between a tart and cake.

5. Cranberry and Orange Pavlovas

Food & Wine:

This Pavlova features whipped cream on top of the crisp meringue shell, which tastes a lot like a Creamsicle.

6. Cranberry-Almond Flour Bread

Food & Wine:

Can’t decide between savory or sweet? This quick bread could go either direction depending on what you spread on it: mild cheese, jam or honey are just a few options. Plus, it's equally delicious on its own.

7. Cranberry-Pecan Bread Pudding with Bacon

Food & Wine:

A good loaf of cranberry-nut bread from a bakery has so much flavor that there's no need to trick it up with lots of ingredients. As the pudding bakes, the bread becomes almost custardlike, with a crispy brown top.

8. Double Cranberry Muffins

Food & Wine:

With tart colorful cranberries both inside and atop these muffins, they are the perfect morning treat for cranberry fans.

9. Big White Chocolate, Almond and Cranberry Cookies

Food & Wine:

Almond flour and toasted almonds give these crispy, chewy cookies doubly nutty flavor.

10. Rosé Sangria with Cranberries and Apples

Food & Wine:

Perfect for fall, this strong but not overly sweet sangria is nicely spiced with cinnamon, anise and cloves.

11. Cranberry-Chia Seed Scones

Food & Wine:

The cranberries give these scones such a bright pop of color and flavor.
