It would appear that I have a fettish for all things Cranberry & Walnut. I got the original recipe from AllRecipes but I’ve added my own touches here & there. Enjoy!
§ 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
§ 1/4 cup white sugar
§ 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
§ 1 egg
§ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
§ 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
§ 1 teaspoon baking powder
§ 1/4 teaspoon salt
§ 1/4 tablespoon ground cinnamon
§ 1 cup chopped dried cranberries
§ 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in cranberries and walnuts.* Spread into a greased brownie pan (I prefer the Pyrex glass containers that come with the plastic lid. Makes putting away leftovers easy). Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool down & cut into bars.
*If the dough is too dry, mix in a teaspoon of milk until the batter is more manageable. The texture should be like Bisquick when you make biscuit dough.
