No Bake Holiday Dessert

Gather the ingredients - * Cranberries * Water * Sugar * Cinnamon * Orange zest * Cream cheese * Sugar * Vanilla extract * Heavy whipping cream * Pound cake

In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, cinnamon, water, orange zest,  and sugar.  Cook on medium heat for 12-15 minutes.
