Christmas Cranberry Butter Bars
Can you believe it’s December already?! Where did the time go? To celebrate the holiday season I love to make these super delicious cranberry butter bars. It sort of shakes things up a bit from the traditional “Christmas cookies”. They are so easy to make and so easy to eat. Let me know what you think!
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 cup dried cranberries
Place sugar, butter, cream, and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil, while stirring constantly. Allow to boil for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Carefully add the powdered sugar and stir well. Then mix in the vanilla extract. Fold in the cranberries until evenly distributed.
Spray an 8 x 8-inch baking dish lightly with cooking spray and spoon in the mixture. Place in the refrigerated and chill until firm. Cut into 1-inch squares and enjoy!

Help – please! Christmas Cranberry Butter Bars sounded like such a good recipe, but what happens to the flour??? Recipe asks for 3 cups of sugar (powdered and granulated) and 2 cups of flour. When does the flour get added?? I added half the flour but could barely move the dough. if this recipe really looks for 5 cups of sugars and flour, when does flour get added. Feels like something is wrong here. Thank you
