These squares are very yummy. Try different fruits or jams to change the flavour. Note, you may replace up to half of the flour with whole wheat flour.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter or margarine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cups cranberry sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter or margarine until the lumps are no larger than peas. Stir in the egg just a little bit, but allow the mixture to stay somewhat crumbly.
  3. 3 Sprinkle half of the mixture in an even layer in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Pack down into a solid crust. Spread the cranberry sauce over the crust. Crumble the remaining mixture over the cranberry sauce.
  4. 4 Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is golden brown. Cool before slicing into bars.

  1. I found this recipe a month ago and it instantly has become a family favorite not to mention an instant sensation when I bring it to gatherings. Do yourself a big favor and put some printed copies in your purse! I have to laugh at myself because although I bake using whole wheat flour most - Read more ...
  2. These turned out really good however I did make a few changes to "healthy" them up a bit. I used around 6 tablespoons of butter (about 1/2 the amount the recipe calls for) and after cutting that in I used around 1/2 C of apple sauce and cut that in also. Doing it this way - Read more ...
  3. I was looking for something to do with leftover homemade cranberry sauce came across this recipe and was impresses with the outcome. The only change I made was to add some quick cook oats to the top layer to make it more like a cereal bar. That worked out very well but I am sure - Read more ...
  4. So delicious and so easy to make! I used butter and love the rich flavor of it blended with the sweet/tart flavor of cranberries. I used whole cranberry sauce and a little more of it in order to evenly coat the crust. I'm wondering if making half again as much of the dough and making - Read more ...
  5. Very good but not simple to make. Not for me at least. I'm not good at making "crumbles" so it took me a lot longer than it should. I doubled that part of the recipe to make sure the bottom was well covered as well as the top. I'm pleased I made that decision it - Read more ...

I made everything as instructed for the bottom layer but added brown sugar and cinnamon for top crumbs. (I shared some - Read more ...
  8. This was a great recipe for the random can of cranberry sauce I had in my pantry. The dough was very sticky and difficult to work with and you could probably use cake mix instead if it's on hand. Overall they were a hit.
  9. These were ok. I was expecting something more buttery crisp and shortbread-like but the crumb mixture on this was very soft and quick bread textured I think because of the egg. I won't be making these again.
