How to Make Cranberry-Macadamia Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ. For crust, in a medium bowl stir together flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup of the nuts. Press the mixture onto the bottom of an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan.
