Cranberry Blondies

"Blondies were my favorite cookie bar as a child. My grandmother made them the best! Here is a modified version of her recipe, which I adapted to use up some of the mega-bag of fresh cranberries that I bought at Costco. I think she would have liked these."

    I think I messed these up because I thought they LOOKED done about 10 minutes before they were supposed to be so I took them out. Maybe my oven is just different because the top was golden brown-almost too brown-but after they cooled and I cut them, they werent done on the inside. But they TASTE wonderful. I will maybe turn the oven temp down next time and see how that does.


Two of my three cats. <img src=""> And my *biggest* and *BEST* cat of all: <img src=""> I am a busy mom of small children by day, and I work part-time as a doctor at night. I am trying to find the ever-elusive balance between career-track and mommy-track. Cooking and baking bring me joy, and I love to see my kids eat healthy homemade foods. I have relatives with a local organic farm, so I use their produce as much as possible. Yum! After some trial and error with rating recipes for various contests and tag games, I think I will from now on stick to the definitions provided by Zaar: 3 stars means I liked it! I might have had to make some adjustments, though. 4 stars means I LOVED it! Almost no adjusting was necessary. 5 stars means one of the most outstanding things I have ever tasted! Stands, as is, as a fabulous dish. I can't imagine giving only 1 or 2 stars -- that would mean that I either picked a recipe that I should have known wouldn't suit my taste, or that I really messed up while making the recipe. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><a href="¤t=kidfrecipeswap.jpg" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
