    Can I use fresh cranberries with this recipe? I've made it before according to the recipe and LOVED it. I just have some fresh cranberries I need to use.

    This is a classic magic bar recipe that is made even more special with the addition of dried cranberries! Follow the directions exactly and it was a hit with everybody. Note that they must cool completely before you even begin to think about cutting them. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home I enjoy classic recipes that have a new twist!

    Super easy and tastes great. I didn't have pecans but I think they would taste (and look) even better with them! Great recipe

    I found them amazing! They freeze well too so you can drop them in a lunch or grab a couple out when friends stop by!! :)
