Cranberry Walnut Squares

Sweet and Tangy

This combination of cranberries, chopped walnuts and a butter dough bakes to produce sweet and tangy layers, like an upside down cake.  When it bakes the batter cooks to a golden brown surface, almost like a cookie but it's cake underneath.  Be sure to let it cool completely before cutting.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325° F.
  2. Melt the butter in two parts: 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup.
  3. Add the 1/4 cup melted butter to a 9 x 9-inch baking pan.
  4. In a bowl combine well the cranberries, chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Spread this mixture in the pan over the melted butter.
  5. Using an electric mixer on medium speed or by hand with a whisk, beat the 2 eggs well. Add the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar, the flour and the remaining 1/2 cup melted butter to the eggs and combine well, beating at medium speed for about 2 minutes to create a soft dough. Spread this on top of the cranberry-walnut mixture.
  6. Bake 1 hour until the top is golden brown and the berries are bubbling.
  7. Let cool before cutting into squares.
