Cranberry Cookie Bars

This is one of my favorite cookie bars to make during the Christmas season.
They are easy to make & a nice switch up from "traditional" Christmas cookies.
 Here is what you need for the Base:
  • 1 cup of butter (softened)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Cinnamon Sugar
Combine ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix.
Mix until all ingredients are combined together.
Spread mixture into a jelly roll pan.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
While the base is baking, start making the filling. 
Here is what you need for the filling:
  • 1 bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cornstarch
Put all filling ingredients into a pot on the stove.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat & let simmer until the berries start popping & sauce thickens.
Cool slightly & spread over base.
So pretty.
Now, it's time to make the topping!
Here is what you need:
  •  1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Stick of Butter
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until crumbly.
 Sprinkle on top of Cranberries.
Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
When cool, cut into squares.
Yum!
There are 3 Christmas cookies I make every year.
These Cranberry Cookie Bars, these & these.
And, of course I make sort of cookie that has chocolate in them ;)
They all have such different flavors....it is nice to have a variety of treats!
 Happy Baking!
Enjoy!
