Cranberry Dream Bars

Recipe by Shellbelle

This recipe came from Mr. Food, and was adapted from the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association. These are very good and a little rich. You can use a store-bought bag of cranberries OR fresh cranberries.

Loved this dessert. So simple to put together. I can only make it when others are around or else I could end up eating the entire pan myself!
