Always looking for more recipes for Cranberries !!! Found this one in my Cape Cod cookbook. It is very good !
I only had a 13 1/2 by 9 1/2 inch glass baking pan, sooo they would be thicker in a regular 13x9" pan. Hope you enjoy ~ could try using other fruits, such as blueberries which is what I am going to try next time I make this !
