This is one of those "let's see what the pantry has to offer" kind of recipes. I revamped an old oatmeal cookie recipe I had and turned it into this. Very yummy if I do say so myself!
Cranberry Pecan Bars
¾ cup butter flavored shortening
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups quick oats
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 12-ounce package white chocolate chips ~ divided use
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped pecans
Combine shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, water and vanilla in a stand mixer. Cream together until smooth.
Add flour, oats, salt and baking soda. Beat until mixed well.
Add the 1 cup of the white chocolate chips, the dried cranberries and pecans.
Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 30 - 45 minutes until golden brown.
Allow to cool to room temp.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt remaining white chocolate. Drizzle over cooled bars.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
