and brown sugar topping and a sweet-tart cranberry filling, these bars are the
perfect finishing touch for your dessert table this holiday season!

Ingredients

Cranberry

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon grated
    orange peel

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1½ cups quick-cooking or
    old-fashioned oats

Directions

  1. In 1½-quart saucepan, mix granulated sugar, orange
    juice and water. Heat to boiling. Stir in all remaining cranberry filling
