This recipe is a favourite with our guests at River Run Cottages Bed & Breakfast, so we serve it often. It's also a favourite of ours. The tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the white chocolate create a contrast that drives the tastebuds wild!

Enjoy with fresh preserves, clotted cream ... or just by themselves!
