Recipe by Kathy-Lynn
I got this from a Taste Of Home magazine. It's a great way to use up cranberries. It's very easy and has few ingredients

Well, Kathy-Lynn wasn't I just the Christmas baking star with these bars? Yummy yummy yummy. I made a couple of batches and mixed it up by adding raspberry jam and a little orange marmalade when I made a double batch. Thank you for posting!
