Note: CeCe uses the disposable foil pans for this recipe. She tells me that
she makes tons of this recipe to give to neighbors during the holidays. But
they wanted more of it, so she buys the cranberries to freeze and makes this
recipe the whole year through. It's a real winner, with the tartness of the
cranberries and the almond extract blending exquisitely with the butter and
the pecans. CECE makes pans of this and freezes it ahead. It's a real winner,
and one recipe that will make you famous!

How to Make CeCe's Spectacular Cranberry Squares (TNT)


  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat
    eggs and sugar together until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the melted
    butter and almond extract. Then add the flour and stir well. Then stir in
    cranberries and the pecans. Mix well. Pour the mixture evenly into the two
    prepared pans. Bake for 70 minutes. Make sure to test the center with a
    toothpick before remove from oven. Let cool at room temperature. (Can be
    prepared the day ahead) Cut into squares and serve. Makes about 12 per pan.
    OK to freeze.
    My own personal note: CeCe Fait was a member of Curves, where I worked for many years. She was a riot and always told the most incredible and sassy stories!
