Apples and pumpkin are favorite flavors around here during this season - or anytime, actually. There is another that we enjoy - cranberries!
I am not sure where I found this recipe. It may have been in some newspaper advertising at some point, but this is delicious!
CRANBERRY NUT BARS
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 1/4 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch baking pan. Beat eggs in medium mixing bowl until thick. Gradually add sugar, beating until thoroughly blended. Stir in flour and melted butter; blend well. Add cranberries and walnuts, mixing gently just until combined. Spread evenly in pan.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool and cut into bars. Makes 16 servings.
What will be on your table for dessert on Thanksgiving Day?
We have been enjoying our pumpkin harvest. It is not something we had anticipated when the garden was planted earlier in the season. Turns out some pumpkin seeds did some sneaking into the compost at some point last year, and they "volunteered" for us this season! The result has been better than we had when we intentionally tried to grow pumpkins!
Anyway, we have been enjoying these unexpected blessings and have roasted a few of them.
These halves are just out of the oven and transferred to the rack to continue draining. This picture below shows what was left behind in the pan where they were roasted.
Are you able to see the pumpkin juice? It is a wonderful natural sweetener, and we've used it in several ways - from sweetening pumpkin soup to serving as a natural syrup on pancakes!
We've been enjoying a bit of a Pumpkin Fest around here and have discovered some real favorites. What is your favorite pumpkin treat?
Strange happenings with the computer, and I have lost all my bookmarks! This makes it difficult for me to check in with some of you. Hopefully all will be back to normal before the week is over, though I've actually no idea how long it will take. I'm checking into that!
