Layered Jelly Cranberry Sauce Top Pecan

Layered Cranberry Sauce and Pecan Toping Recipe

I can't wait to try this yummy dessert. It looks very good to me right now. A fantastic treat for the holidays or dessert for any occasion. 

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped pecans, plus more for topping (optional)
1 16-ounce can jellied cranberry sauce

Beat the cream cheese and mayonnaise in a bowl with a mixer until creamy (it should be spreadable).
Beat in the pecans.
Put the cranberry sauce in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork. 
Spread about half of the mashed cranberry sauce in the bottom of a bowl or parfait dish. 
Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the cranberry sauce, then gently cover with the remaining cranberry sauce. 
Top with more pecans, if desired.
