cranberry bars

i made a half pan of cranberry bars adapted from here. ms. goodman's blog is simply beautiful, her pictures incredible. i am afraid neither my bars nor my picture do her justice. the only changes i made to her recipe, besides cutting it in half was to use vanilla sugar instead of plain white, and since i had no orange, i subbed sunnyd, yep sunnyd. these bars are delicious, if you like cranberries and i happen to adore them, you will enjoy these. they are not overly sweet with a nice tang from the berries. jamie loved the crust the best. he told me he wished i used the dough for cookies. these cranberry bars make a wonderful fall dessert. go check them out. enjoy.

I saw these on Katie's blog and bought a bag of cranberries to make them this week. I'm so glad to hear a second thumbs up for them. I can't wait to try them now!

I definitely want to try these. They seem so perfectly seasonal and are a great alternative for blueberries or strawberries when they aren't in season.
