These are very good. I like them better than cranberry nut bread. I cut the frozen cranberries in half and did add a few extra berries. The next time I will add extra nuts also.

Although this recipe tastes quite delicious I'm only rating it a 4, because the finished product is not a "bar" recipe. I followed the recipe exact and it is more of a coffee cake. Still good and delicious, the walnuts go so well with the cranberries but I was hoping for more of a cookie-like bar. Also the finished product doesn't look like the picture. The picture shows nice clean sides, not crumbly like a cake would be but firmer like a cookie. Again, this is not what I ended up with. This recipe should be renamed to "cranberry nut coffee cake".

I doubled the receipe and made them in a 9 x 13 pan. I cooked them the same as the receipe said and they turned out wonderful. Very easy with few ingredients.

These were very good. I was surprised considering the limited ingredients. I only used half the cranberries, as another reviewer suggested, but the full amount would have been perfect. My bars looked exactly liked the photo.

light and fluffy! Perfect for any event. Suggestion: cut the cranberries in half. A full cranberry can give too much of a sour taste in the mouth.

Nice recipe to use up leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving. I like that it has few ingredients. I turned out really well and it reminds me of a strawberry shortcake.

I cut the butter to 2 Tbs. and added 3 Tbs. of applesauce and they came out great. I do agree that they are more of a coffee cake than a bar but they were still very yummy.
