Biltmore Cranberry /Walnut Topping Was a Winner!

By Kimberly Walsh

We loved the Biltmore Cranberry/Walnut topping. We used it on cheesecake and on ice cream. It is delicious and colorful! We served it warm. We used only a little over 1 cup of sugar because we don't like super sweet toppings. Adjust the sugar to your...

Wonderful Topping!

Bring home our Biltmore Vanilla Bean Cheesecake and make it holiday-worthy with this simple recipe for a Cranberry-Walnut topping. 

Serves 12

Preparation Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

  • 4 cups cranberries- fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts- whole or broken

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place all ingredients except walnuts in a medium sauce pot. Cook fruit and spice mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally. While cranberries are cooking, place walnuts on a baking sheet and toast in oven for about 5–7 minutes, until they are very aromatic and crunchy. Your cranberry topping is finished when it’s reduced and syrupy. It should be a nice vibrant red. Let cool and stir in toasted walnuts. Can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for several days. Spoon a generous serving over each slice of cheesecake to be served.

Tips
To cut cheesecake easily, chill well. Run a sharp knife under hot water, wipe dry, and cut a slice. Repeat for more slices.
