cranberry bliss bars

My Starbucks connoisseur, Friend Karen, says these are prefect. I think she ate 2+ before she left my house with her box of Christmas goodies. That’s quite the recommendation for this recipe, coming from one who is such a Starbucks fan.

The bars are good, consisting of a cookie base flavored with holiday spices, and topped with a cream cheese icing. Add a few cranberries for Christmas color, and you have a very festive, flavorful holiday treat.

Santa looks as if he is ready to jump into the middle of this ‘bliss.’
The recipe makes a large 9×13 pan of bars. Cut the bars into squares, and then cut in half diagonally to form triangle shaped bars.
