Cranberry Walnut Bars

Ingredients for cookie crust:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Ingredients for cranberry walnut layer:

1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup walnuts, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Prepare cookie crust. Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Beat flour, 1/2 cup butter, sugar and salt together in a large bowl at medium speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (I did this in the food processor). Press firmly and evenly into prepared pan. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.

3. While crust is baking, beat corn syrup, eggs, granulated sugar and melted butter in a large bowl until well blended. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts.

4. Spread mixture evenly over hot crust. Bake 15 minutes or until set. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting into bars.

Makes 32 bars.

Here’s a sweet song. My daughter’s nickname is Sidecar, so I like it even that much more.
