  1. 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.
  2. 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]


I love cooking for family and friends. I especially enjoy is like combining art and science to create something extraordinary. I am most known for making desserts like Recipe #336060. My pet peeve: when people sign-up to bring dessert to a pot-luck or dinner party and they bring something pre-made from the store. My friends and family now know to always let me bring the dessert. :) I enjoy traveling and believe that one of the best ways to experience a culture is through food. I have lived in Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and currently live in the US. My rating system: 5 stars - Excellent! Delicious! Could not be better...will make often. 4 stars - Very good! May tweak slightly. 3 stars - Good base recipe. Will need to tweak. 2 stars - Ok. Will keep looking.
