A perfect recipe for using up that can of cranberry sauce we all seem to have in our cupboard. You’ll find cranberry sauce on sale after Thanksgiving so make a mental note to stock up when it’s in season. I think these bars would be delicious, especially when served with ice cream.
I hadn’t thought to use it before in this way, but it seems very similar to blueberry oat bars which I’ve made a few times. A quick and easy dessert for when guests arrive unexpectedly.
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 can whole cranberry sauce
Mix oats, flour and brown sugar. Add in butter until crumbly, put half into 5×8″ baking dish, cover with the cranberry sauce, top with balance of crumb mixture.
Bake 45 minutes or until nicely brown. Cut in squares and top with ice cream. Serves 6 to 8.
