Recipe: Cranberry Pecan Bars

My mom received a framed copy of this recipe years ago from an old friend. Whenever she needs or wants to bake some holiday treats, she’ll make a batch of these bars. They’re sweet, tart, and yummy all at the same time. Enjoy!

2 tablespoons sugar  cup chopped pecans
1 cup flour  2 tablespoons flour
cup chopped pecans grated rind of one orange

  2. Mix crust ingredients together until crumbly. Press into pan. Bake 10 minutes, until light brown.
  3. Mix topping ingredients together. Pour over crust. Bake 30-40 minutes.
