Pecan & Cranberry Orange Bars
Just minutes to make, the recipe starts with a delicious pecan bar mix. You simply add dried cranberries and some orange juice and zest, then bake and take. It's quick, delicious and stunning, and you can see why it's a number-one favorite everywhere-few can resist it.


  • 1 package Krusteaz Pecan Bar Mix (1 pouch each crust mix, filling mix and pecans)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


Preheat oven to 350 F. Place crust mix in medium bowl. Cut in butter or margarine with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Press crust mixture into lightly greased 8x8x2-inch pan.*

Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Sprinkle pecans and cranberries over crust. Set aside.

In medium bowl, whisk together filling mix, orange juice, egg and orange zest until blended. Immediately after stirring, pour gently over pecan and cranberry layer.

Bake 28-32 minutes or until center does not jiggle when lightly shaken and top begins to brown.

Cool completely before cutting.

* For an easy and elegant tart, press crust mixture into bottom and up sides of lightly greased 9-inch tart pan. Bake at 350 F 14-16 minutes. Set aside. Proceed as directed for bars.
