Pumpkin–Cranberry Brioche

As our favorite food holiday swiftly approaches (and unavoidable procrastination persists), we find ourselves constantly reaching into our recipe collection for inspiration. Looking for something new to whip up this year? Whether it's new twists on old favorites or quintessential classics, we've got all your Thanksgiving needs covered. From now until the big T-day, stay tuned for great dishes to wow your guests with this holiday—we'll be posting every day!

Flavor champions of the season, pumpkin and cranberries pop in a host of both sweet and savory dishes on the Thanksgiving table. This year, do your taste buds a favor and combine the two holiday heroes into a festive brioche loaf that will inspire oohs and aahs. Chef Antonio Campolio of the Marcus Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla, WA, developed this recipe with his mother, Jelema, who is the lead baker at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia. The brioche is wonderful with coffee and some whipped cream on the side, or as a happy addition to your dinner's bread basket.
