From Land O'Lakes. I substitute pecans for the macadamia nuts. I include these in my Christmas cookie gift tins and they are always very popular.

What can I say except WOW!! I didn't have an 8x8 inch pan so doubled the crust recipe, baked it in an 9x9 inch pan and it still turned out just fine. I did have to bake it a few minutes longer but that was no problem. Nothing else in the recipe was changed. These are so way past good, so easy to make, and I can't to share the recipe with family and friends. THANK YOU for this wonderful recipe.

Well, these little tasties will definitely be showing up again & again on my counter during the up-coming winter holidays ~ OUTSTANDING! Except for toasting the pecans that I used (& the rounded measure of cranberries), I followed this recipe right on down & they turned out just great ~ Very nice combo of flavors from the 4 title ingredients! Thank you for such a wonderful keeper recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
