1/4 cup (50mL) butter, softened
1/3 cup (75mL) packed brown sugar
1 cup (250mL) all purpose flour
1/4 tsp (1mL) salt

1 cup (250mL) packed brown sugar
1 tbsp (15mL) all purpose flour
1/4 tsp (1mL) baking powder
pinch salt
2 tbsp (30mL) butter, softened
2 Naturegg™ Omega 3 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp (5mL) vanilla
1 pkg (142g) Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries
1 square each bittersweet and white chocolate, melted (optional)


1. Crust: Preheat oven to 350º F (180º C). Cream butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add flour and salt and stir until well combined and crumbly. Press mixture into the bottom of an 8-in (20 cm) square baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until pale golden around the edges.

2. Topping: Stir brown sugar with flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter, eggs and vanilla and stir until well blended. Stir in the Craisins®.

3. Pour filling over crust and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbly around the edges but still slightly jiggly in the centre. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Drizzle with chocolate (if using). Slice into squares.

Tip: Recipe doubles easily to fill a 9-x 13-in (3 L) baking pan.

As seen in the December 2003 issue of Homemakers.
