A family favorite, its a one bowl recipe. I always add 1 tsp of vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Easy to make after a long day at work. I found if you put it in the refrig overnight, the next day it has hints of a cheesecake.

I thought this was just okay. Yes, it was easy. It reminded me of a giant sugar cookie with cranberries. I baked it for an hour. My toothpick just didn't want to come out clean.

I have been making this dessert since it first appeared on the cover of Taste of Home in the DecJan issue 1996. Whenever I serve it it is a huge success and everyone asks for the recipe
