Frozen Holiday Cranberry Salad

We just returned from our place in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Colorado.
We have 5 acres there and are surrounded by Amish neighbors. There's a Mennonite Bakery in town that we visit almost daily. My wife grew up on a Mennonite Farm in Kansas and the Bakery makes all of the breads, pastries, cakes, cookies and cinnamon rolls exactly as she remembers her mother making on the farm.
I have a great collection of cookbooks that are Amish and Mennonite and of course I have all of my mother in law's recipes. Many of them are hand written.

Here's just another Thanksgiving recipe using Cranberries.
This recipe is from one of the bakery's cookbooks.

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 9"X13" pan

1 C Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/4 C Lemon Juice
1 small can of crushed Pineapple, drained
1 (16 0z.) can of Whole Cranberry Sauce
2 C Miniature Marshmallows
1/2 C chopped Pecans
1 - (8 oz.) container of Cool Whip, thawed

In a mixing bowl:
Lemon Juice
Whisk Well.

Fold in by hand:
Cranberry Sauce
Mix well.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Pour into the pan and freeze for 1 hour, or until firm.
Cut into squares to serve.

Peace in the Kitchen!
