Expert Tips

*To toast pecans, heat oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Cranberries can get away from you and roll right off the cutting board if you try to chop too many at once. Chop just a small handful at a time for more control.

This recipe makes two loaves—one for now and one to wrap tightly and store in the freezer for later.
