Anyone who likes cranberries is going to love these. I made them for Christmas last year and will be making two batches this time. This came from one of my Betty Crocker cookbooks.

Delicious and simple to make...A nice combination of tart and slightly sweet! I used all whole wheat flour and a little less brown sugar in the topping. My husband, 3 year old, 11 month old, and I all love it! Thanks!

Yummy! These bars are so good that I am going to freeze a bunch of bags of fresh cranberries so I can make them all year.

A nice thin Holiday cookie bar with a buttery outside and a sweet, tart middle. What a delight. You do have to love cranberries, though to appreciate this recipe. Thank you.
