I made these tonight for Thanksgiving tomorrow and of course have done plenty of taste testing. These are truly great! They look very pretty and festive too. First of all I only used 1/2 cup of butter and it works perfectly! Someone said they were greasy and I hate it when bars are greasy. Also, I was so close to cutting back on the sugar but in the end I followed the recipe and am so glad I did cause I think these would have been too tart if I would not have used the full amount of sugar. I just flattened pieces of dough in my hands and they would lay those pieces on top of the the filling and it works very well. It is true that you must wait until they are completely cool to cut but with any bar like this, I put them in the freezer for maybe 10-15 minutes before cutting (use a serated knife like a steak knive) and they cut fine and look nice. I did add chopped pecans on top of the cranberry filling too. I dusted with powdered sugar and next time will drizzle white chocolate. I was worried it would be too sweet with chocolate but I don't think so! Give these a try.
