These bars were very good. A nice dessert for Thanksgiving. Makes a nice light treat after all that filling food.

Also made and took to work, everyone loved them. Thanks for the recipe.

I made these last night to take to a Super Bowl party. The recipe really makes a big batch! I think the reason other reviewers are finding them "bland", "ok", or not as tart as expected, is because there is too much of the crumb mixture. Next time I will reduce it by about 1 cup. It would also be good to add another full or half can of cranberries. But overall, tasty. And I was asked for the recipe!

I thought these were on the bland side. I was expecting more of that tart cranberry taste.
