1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter


1 large Land O Lakes® Egg, beaten

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped fresh cranberries

1/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachio nuts


Powdered sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1 cup flour and 1/3 cup brown sugar in bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto bottom of ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine egg, sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and vanilla in same bowl. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Pour over hot, partially baked crust. Continue baking 20-25 minutes or until filling is set. Cool completely on cooling rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar; cut into bars with sharp knife.

Tip #1

For the best flavor and texture, store sealed packages of nuts in a cool, dark place. Once you’ve opened the package, place the nuts in a container with tight-fitting lid and keep them in refrigerator for up to six months or in the freezer for up to one year.
