Ingredients

1 (15.25- to 16.5-ounce) box golden vanilla cake mix

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 (12-ounce) jar apricot preserves

1 cup cherry-flavored sweetened dried cranberries

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Place cake mix, butter, almond extract and egg in bowl. Mix well using fork. Reserve 2/3 cup mixture for topping; set aside. Press remaining mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 10 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine apricot preserves and dried cranberries in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes or until preserves are melted.

  4. STEP 4

    Spread fruit mixture over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle with reserved cake mix mixture. Bake 24-26 minutes or until topping is light golden brown. Cool completely. Cut into bars.

Tip #1

- You can also use vanilla or yellow cake mix in place of the golden vanilla cake mix. The color may be slightly different, depending on the type of cake mix you use.

Tip #2

- Sweetened dried cranberries come in a variety of flavors. Choose the flavor you prefer.

Very delicious! I have made these several times and everyone always loves them. I do believe that the cooking time is off - in my experience, baking the crust for 10 minutes is too long, and they do not take 24 - 26 minutes to bake.
