Cranberry Squares

Elizabeth Ryals


If you never know just what to do with leftover cranberry sauce this is a great recipe. It's an especially nice treat to whip up for overnight family guests the morning after Thanksgiving. Or if you love to use fresh cranberries instead of sauce that's good too.
