Cranberry Nut Streusel Bars

 Cranberry Nut Streussel Bars


Cranberry Nut Streusel Bars are great for a brunch or even Christmas morning!


1 Cup Cranberry Sauce
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 Stick (4 oz) Unsalted Butter
2/3 Cup Walnuts, chopped


Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9 inch square or round baking pan.

Stir together cranberry sauce and sugar in a small bowl.  Microwave for 1 minute and stir.  Keep heating for 30 seconds at a time until the sugar is dissolved.

Mix flour, oats, brown sugar and salt together in a large bowl.  Cut butter into small pieces and work it into the flour mixture with your fingers until crumbly.  Stir in walnuts.

Press 2 cups of the crumbly streusel into the prepared pan.  Spread on the cranberry sauce mixture and sprinkle on the remaining streusel.

Bake until light brown on top, about 30 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting.

Yield: about 12 bars

Cranberry Pork Loin

I haven’t made anything in the slow cooker in a while, so I pulled it out of the cabinet and threw a few things in.  Slow cooking is great because you can put in almost anything.  I found this recipe on “A Year of Slow Cooking”, which is a blog all about slow cooking.  It turned out great!

2 lbs pork loin, silver skin removed
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce (or 2 cups homemade)
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon dried onion

Place the pork loin in the crock pot.  Pour in the cranberry sauce, soy sauce and sprinkle with the dried onion.

Cook 4-5 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.

Serve over mashed potatoes.

Serves: 4-6

Tip: Use slow cooker liners for easy clean up
