    Very easy recipe to make. When cutting I suggest dipping your knife in hot water so the bars cut clean. Very tart and loved the crust. I added a dash of salt to crust. Mine didn't look as pretty as the photo but we enjoyed them

    Two stars for the idea of a cranberry layer. I'll use it with a better crust and much better lemon layer. I'm surprised at how those two components leave MUCH to be desired.

    These are delicious, though very tart. Not a favorite of children. Everyone I gave some to loved them. Creative twist on the lemon bar.

    You can find CHEAP cranberries at Walgreen's. They are $1.00 a box under the brand name of Deerfield Farms. They are sweetened and the amount in box is 4.25 oz.

    I made this recipe the other day with dried cherries. Instead of making bars I pressed the crust into mini muffin tin and made little "tartlets". That was more work than it was worth but they were cute. I loved the lemon/cherrry flavor combo but the texture of the soaked/choppedcherries was a little weird. Would prefer something smoother in textue for that layer. Maybe cherry jelly or jam would work better.

    Love the idea of inlineclass with using dried cherries as an alternative. I do love cranberries as I use them a lot, Now with lemon as well, wow, what a treat.

    No you can not use canned cranberry sauce. Its basically gell, even the one with whole cranberries has to much gelatin.heat melts gelatin, thats why you need thick with cranberries it holds up to heat and gives you something to bite into without it running out. the dried can be found any store by the raisins

    Has anyone figured out the amount of carbohydrates in these, using the sweetened dried cranberries??
