Cranberry Compote

1 cup fresh cranberries

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup brandy

3 tablespoons water. 

Boil until cranberries are tender.

Martha Stewart suggests this be served warm over shortbread cookies spread with mascarpone cheese.

We enjoyed this on Triscuits spread with mascarpone cheese.  It’s also good cold and stirred into cottage cheese.  Tomorrow morning I’m going to stir some into my oatmeal.  I also think goat cheese would be a good substitue for the mascarpone on Triscuits.

    My goodness, that sounds amazing! By the time I hit the word “shortbread” I was halfway out the door to Byerly’s to buy the ingredients. Can’t wait to try this one!
