  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •  cups all-purpose flour

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dried cranberries (chopped, for topping)

 

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Either grease and flour a baking pan measuring 9 inches by 13 inches, or line it with parchment paper. Butter that has been melted and brown sugar should be mixed together in a big basin and beaten until smooth.

After thoroughly combining the ingredients, add the eggs and vanilla. Flour, baking powder, and salt should be mixed together in a separate bowl using a whisk. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in a slow and steady manner until they are almost completely incorporated. Cranberries and white chocolate chips should be folded in at this point.

Evenly distribute the batter in the pan that has been prepared. The borders should be golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the centre of the cake. Bake for twenty to twenty-five minutes. The bars should be allowed to cool completely in the pan.

To achieve a smooth and creamy consistency, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. After the bars have cooled, spread the icing over them. Cranberries that have been cut and orange zest should be sprinkled on top for additional flavour and contrast. Remove from the oven and serve in squares or triangles.

Notes

Comparison of Fresh and Dried Cranberries: For this recipe, you have the option of using either fresh or dried cranberries. The sharpness of fresh cranberries is a welcome addition, while the sweetness and chewiness of dried cranberries are more noticeable.

To adjust the sweetness, you can either lower the amount of sugar that is used in the batter or use less frosting if you discover that the bars are too sweet for your taste.

To make these bars gluten-free, you can substitute a gluten-free flour mix for the all-purpose flour. This will make the bars allergy-free. It is sufficient to verify that the baking powder and other components you are using are also free of gluten.
