Cranberry-Orange Bars

A long story emergency situation (very complex and although not funny in the moment, is funny now), led way to the discovery of this recipe, shared by a friend.  Oh my, it's marvelous. The friends I made it for agreed. Originally from here. It's adapted, of course.  It's so easy.  And it could be a dessert or a breakfast food. We'll be having it for breakfast this morning, along with a 16 egg fritatta (thankful those chickens keep laying so I have eggs to use up and leftovers after breakfast) that's packed with broccoli, kale and herbs-all preserved from the garden. If you're driving by, pull in for breakfast.  You know, since you're all in the area. Or just make it yourself and we can enjoy breakfast together though the miles.  Anyway, do try this.  You'll be happy you did.


2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 tsp grated orange zest
1 cup Fresh Cranberries

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
splash milk


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch baking pan.

Dump all ingredients except cranberries and glaze into bowl. Mix well with mixer. Gently fold in cranberries.  Spread in greased pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool.

In separate bowl, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and tiny splash of milk.  Whisk until frosting consistency.  Drizzle over bars.
