Cranberry-Walnut Bars

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.
