    Sue Lau's Note:

    I got a recipe for Cranberry Bliss Bars from someone else a few years ago when I was heavy into low carb and changed it into low carb suitable. These are so GOOD! People not doing low carb loved these as well and wanted the recipe (and they didn't realize they were low carb!). Who would have thought Starbucks pastries could be healthy???

      Very good. They don't really taste like Starbucks Cranberry Bliss bars, but they are good in their own right. We couldn't find low-carb baking mix, but we did use neufchatel instead of cream cheese.
