- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, plus more for topping (optional)
- 1 16-ounce can jellied cranberry sauce
Put the cranberry sauce in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork.
Spread about half of the mashed cranberry sauce in the bottom of a bowl or parfait dish. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the cranberry sauce, then gently cover with the remaining cranberry sauce. Top with more pecans, if desired.
