Directions :

Step 1
In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk orange juice and 1 tablespoon honey until combined, then bring to a boil. Add cranberries and thyme sprig and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries burst and become saucy, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove thyme and stir in orange zest. Let cool.
Step 2
Meanwhile, drain brine from feta. In a food processor, pulse feta, garlic, red pepper flakes, and chopped thyme until feta is broken up into small crumbs. Add cream cheese and pulse until combined. With motor running, drizzle in oil and blend until mixture is smooth and fluffy.
Step 3
Transfer whipped feta to a serving bowl. Top with cooled cranberry sauce. Sprinkle with pistachios and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon honey. Serve with crackers alongside.
Step 4
Make Ahead: Dip can be made 4 days ahead. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.

Storage & make ahead:
Whether you have leftovers or want to make this dip ahead, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days. If you do make this dip ahead, we recommend waiting to top it with your cranberry sauce and pistachios until right before serving.

Tip:

Got leftover dip because you didn’t get extra crackers? Leave off the topping, then thaw and drain some frozen spinach and mix it with the leftover dip and a pinch of salt to make a stellar stuffing for chicken breast or salmon.
