I got this recipe from the church cookbook. Although I did find it on the Land O Lake butter site later. If you are a coconut,or cranberry lover.You will love these rich coconut Cranberry bars. They have a delicious short bread crust. So delicious!!! My family and I love desserts,and this is one everyone should add to their holiday menu.They are also so easy to make. A beginner could make these bars.
