Reviews for Sour Cream & Cranberry Bars
"Great Bars. I think they are too sweet and everyone else disagrees, so I drink black coffee with them."
"Delicious! Didn't change a thing in the recipe, and these bar cookies came out great. A keeper, for sure. Thanks!"
"These are amazing! All my favorite flavors in one delicious bar cookie. Next time I'll try using dried cherries in place of the cranberries for a different version."
