Cranberry Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Divaconviva

Real quick and easy to make! I got this recipe from an acquaintance at a boardgame night. The original recipe called for walnuts, but I think pecans are a more complementary flavor. These cranberry bars are delicious, with a delightful balance of sweet and tart. Don't count on leftovers - these moist squares get gobbled right up!

Parchment lined pan is a must..or bars will stick Added vanilla and used walnuts as it is what was on hand....absolutely delicious....a regular all year round for me now. But especially a staple on the holidays.
