4slicesthick-sliced white breadsuch as Pepperidge Farm Hearty White
18 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
½cfinely chopped fresh cranberries
2Tlight brown sugar
Heat oven to 450F.
On a cutting board, cut the crusts off the bread. Cut each piece of bread into 8 pieces.
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cranberries, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Place a dollop of cream cheese-cranberry mixture on each piece of bread.
Cut the bacon strips in half. Wrap each bread-cranberry piece loosely in a piece of bacon (loosely because the bacon will constrict as it cooks and you don't want the cheese filling to be all squeezed out). Secure with toothpicks. Bake at 450F for 17-20 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 32 appetizers.
