  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

    Combine butter and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour, oats and orange zest; beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chocolate chips and cranberries. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture.

  3. STEP 3

    Firmly press remaining crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine cream cheese and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Add whipping cream and vanilla, beat until smooth.

    Pour cream cheese mixture evenly over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture gently over filling. Continue baking 27-30 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool completely; cut into bars. Store refrigerated.
