found: "the best" cranberry blondies recipe


 I did a little baking Christmas Eve day, my own recipe for Rice Crispy Balls (I add white chocolate chips and make balls instead of squares then sprinkle with red and green sugar.

I made Cranberry Blondies, now Mom's favorite, a couple of years ago, but for the second straight year, I forgot to take the recipe with I figured I'd put it on the blog, not only to share, but to always have access to it as well!

CRANBERRY BLONDIES from Better Homes & Gardens November 2007

1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C dried cranberries
1/2 C chopped white chocolate
1 C fresh cranberries

Preheat oven to 350°.

In large mixing bowl beat butter with wire whisk or electric mixer until softened.  Whisk or beat in sugars, baking powder, soda and salt. Whisk or beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.  With a whisk, or with electric mixer on low speed, beat in flour.

Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate (I like to throw in a few fresh berries in at this point as well).  Spread batter in a buttered 11x7x1½-inch or 9x9x2 baking pan.  Sprinkle with fresh cranberries; press in lightly with spatula.  Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Cool on wire rack 1 hour.  Cut into bars.  Makes 12 bars
