Creamy Cranberry Salad

Here we are in the Thanksgiving season. I will be adding some favorite family recipes thorough out the month that can be used for Christmas also. This cranberry salad is very good, quick and can be prepared the day before. That is always a plus when you are having guests.
Creamy Cranberry Salad Serves 12
1 (3oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 cup of whipping cream ( you can use something like Cool Whip but remember it will have a lot of artificial additive)
1-2 tbsp sugar
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple in its own juice, drain
2 cups whole cranberry sauce
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Whip cream adding 1-2 tbsp sugar to taste
Set cream aside and blend mayonnaise with softened cream cheese. Then add the whip cream into the cream cheese mixture.
In a separate bowl combine drained pineapple, cranberry sauce and almonds. Pour whip cream dressing over it. Cover and refrigerator overnight. Before serving mix together.
