My mom made these bars when I was a child, and she still does, so they bring back a lot of memories for me. This recipe is my own variation that I developed in recent years; I love the colors of the cranberries and white chocolate — they're very festive. But sometimes I make them just like Mom with milk chocolate and walnuts. Most of the time I forget to add the salt, and I find it doesn't make any difference — they always taste delicious and are always a hit!

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a mixer, beat the butter, sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla. Gradually mix in flour, then salt, and continue beating until well blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Transfer batter to a 9 by 13-inch pan, and flatten out with a rubber spatula.

Bake until slightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately place squares of white chocolate on top, gently spreading with an off-set spatula or dull knife as they melt. Sprinkle with nuts and cranberries. Allow to set, about 15 minutes, and then cut into squares.
