Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cheese Bars

I made these this morning and had to hide them from my husband once he ate two or the whole pan would be gone in no time. This is a real keeper!

Wow! What a great combination of ingredients. These cookie bars are fantastic and easy to very make. My family finished every crumb in two days.

Very easy to bake & very good to eat

I made these for my family, some like cranberries & some like chocolate, I was not sure about the combination, but I took a chance...these were excellent & so easy to bake. Highly recommend.

THE BEST BAR COOKIE

I MADE THESE FOR A PICNIC AND THEY WERE A BIG HIT. THEY ARE VERY TASTY AND EVERYONE WANTD THE RECIPE. THEY ALSO TASTE GOOD WHEN YOU SPRINKLE THE CHIPS AND CRANBERRY PIECES ON TOP OF THE CRUMB MIXTURE. I'LL BE MAKING THIS RECIPE A LOT!!!

- DONNA BELL from SHARPSVILLE, PA

Very sweet

I don't really care for cranberries, but with the addition of the raisins, they made a very tasty cookie. You can only eat a small piece, however, as they are very rich.
