Cranberry Sauce Dip Appetizer

My favorite winter recipe:

I was excited for this question because I have been wanting to share this amazing appetizer recipe that was passed down to me by my MIL {which she found in a Christmas book}. I have to say though, I have made this during other seasons as well because it's just THAT good. It's a cranberry sauce dip with club crackers. DIVINE! I actually made it for the party this past weekend and happened to take a picture of it!

1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup minced onion
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces cream cheese
fresh rosemary
fresh cranberries (to garnish) (optional)

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together first five ingredients.
Bring to a boil but stir frequently.
Once sauce boils, remove from heat.
Pour into a heat proof bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.
This can be made ahead which makes this recipe very nice.
It can be refrigerated up to three days.
Place cream cheese on a nice appetizer plate and top with Cranberry-Horseradish Sauce.
On side of cream cheese, place fresh rosemary sprigs and fresh cranberries.
Serve with assorted crackers.
