Berry Crumb Bar Cookies - Margaret Ullrich

Amazing what we find in our kitchens, once the holiday season is over.

Cranberries.
Fresh cranberries.
Yeah, I know.  
The bags were so cute.

Nobody can face another turkey dinner.

Guess what?
Cranberries can be baked in pastries. 
Like regular berries.

This recipe also works with blueberries.
But that's not what you're stuck with right now.
