Christmas Cookies Day 4 - Cranberry Orange Bars


Fresh Cranberries and oranges are traditional flavors for Christmas baking. They are combined in these Cranberry Orange Bars to make decadent bar cookies that are suitable for serving at a holiday buffet or for gift giving. The tart filling complements the sweet buttery crust, made from the Basic Sugar Cookie Mix which is quick and easy to make and once made, is a huge timesaver for busy bakers who love to bake cookies.
