DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan, combine cranberries and dates.
  • 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).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla; set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, baking soda and salt.
  • Stir in butter until crumbly.
  • Press half into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan.
  • Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Spoon cranberry mixture over the crust; spread gently. Sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture;pat down gently.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
  • Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over bars.
  • Yield: 4 dozen.
