Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.
Cranberry bars are a festive and can be served year-round.
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch square baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine oats, 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in large bowl; stir until well mixed. Cut in butter and vanilla with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Place
crust mixture into small bowl; set aside.
Press remaining crust mixture into prepared pan. Bake 15-18 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown.
Meanwhile, combine sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar, egg yolk, lemon zest and vanilla in small bowl; stir until well mixed. Stir in cranberries. Spread filling mixture over hot, partially baked crust.
Stir pecans into reserved crust mixture; sprinkle over cranberry mixture, lightly pressing down onto filling. Bake 35-40 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 30 minutes; refrigerate 2 hours. Cut into bars.

I brought these to a party and everyone loved them. I made the crust as directed, substituting walnuts for pecans. I wanted a bright red filling made from fresh cranberries, so I cooked some with sugar and a bit of orange juice, and used that as a filling in place of the sour cream/ dried cranberry mixture. They were delicious and easy. TIp: cut while still warm.
I have made similar cranberry bars - but these look far better. Will try these for Christmas dinner side dish. Yum-
This is a quick and easy dessert and a family favorite.
This recipe is delicious! Although it says to serve it after chilling for two hours, we tried it after cooling for about an hour. It was yummy warm. Later, when we tried it after regrigerating, it was also scrumptious. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves cranberries and/or dessert.
This recipe is by far the best !!!!

But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
