The weather has finally turned cold and the holidays are right around the corner. We are starting to get in the spirt with the recipes we are making. We found this recipe for cranberry nut bars last fall, it has been a huge hit. Fresh cranberries are the star of these bars, with the perfect mix of sweet and tart. Fresh cranberries are great for bread, bars, cookies, pancakes, and of course homemade cranberry sauce! (You can even use them in your fall centerpiece.)
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 350°F, grease an 8 inch square glass baking dish.
2. Beat eggs with mixer until blended and slightly thick. Slowly mix the sugar in until well combined. Mix in flour and butter until blended well. Fold in cranberries and walnuts.
3. Evenly spread bar mixture into the greased baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown and set. (You can test by insetting a toothpick in the center, they are done when it comes out clean.) Let cool and enjoy!
These are a great sweet treat for any meal, what sweets are you making for Thanksgiving?
