    Sweet Diva's Note:

    From my Best of Country Cooking Cookbook collection. This is my favorite cranberry dessert - I could eat the whole pan myself! Fortunately, my family won't let me - they love them too! Even my neighbor, who doesn't like cranberries, can't resist these bars.

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, combine cranberries and dates.
    2. 2
      Cover and cook over low heat for 15-20 minutes or until berries pop, stirring often. (I also mash the cranberries with a fork once they are soft enough and reach the about-to-pop stage).
    3. 3
      Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla; set aside.
    4. 4
      In a bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking soda and salt.
    5. 5
      Stir in butter until crumbly.
    6. 6
      Press half into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan.
    7. 7
      Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Spoon cranberry mixture over the crust; spread gently. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture;pat down gently.
    8. 8
      Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
    9. 9
      Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over bars.

      I made these for coffee hour and they went fast. These are addicting and I can see how you could eat the whole pan! I used frozen cranberries and needed to add some water (about 4 tbs) to keep them from sticking. The orange flavor in the frosting really makes these. Thanks for posting! Roxygirl

      These were good. I would recommend putting 3 or 4 tablespoons of water in with the dates and cranberries to help get them cooking and bursting. That was the only thing that gave me a problem. Otherwise this was a good recipe. Thanks!
