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


  1. Beat the cream cheese and mayonnaise in a bowl with a mixer until creamy (it should be spreadable). Beat in the pecans.
  2. Put the cranberry sauce in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork.
  3. 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.
