Cranberry Swirl Bread

I found this delicious Cranberry Swirl Bread
recipe in a Pillsbury Recipe Booklet that I bought in 1988.
I have been making every year for Thanksgiving ever since.
The 'swirl' part of this recipe is cream cheese.
How good does that sound!

Cranberry Swirl Bread is packed full of
chopped cranberries and chopped walnuts.
The perfect holiday bread.
