Chocolate-Glazed Cranberry Blondies

I think these would also be good with white chocolate. I increased the baking time to 25 minutes, and these were still a soft and gooey blondie. From Fitness Magazine.

I doubled the recipe as I had to bring in goodies to work and they turned out really well. In fact, several people asked for the recipe. I did them with a white chocolate glaze. I will definitely make these again!

My 15 year old son loved these! I used about 3/4 cup flour after taking advice from fellow Zaar members and because I doubled the recipe I substituted half the butter with applesauce. It was wonderful. I drizzled a little melted white chocolate on top too. Thanks Kburie!

Very Yummy! I did increase the flour to 3/4 c. as the batter was WAY too sticky without. I was out of walnuts (which would have only enhanced this bar) so they were left out. I used maybe only half the glaze as I didn't want the glaze to dominate the taste. Infact next time I may leave it off altogether and maybe use 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips instead for extra ease of preperation. A wonderful bar with chewy edges and a softer center, sweet bar, tangy cranberries and earthy chocolate...a winning combination.
