Cranberry Chews

img_8466-2Cooking With Kids

I try baking a new recipe with my Nanny Kids each holiday season. The kids love gathering the ingredients needed, greasing the baking dish, measuring the ingredients, and mixing the recipe. This year I tried a recipe found on the back of a fresh “Top Crop” fresh cranberries. I love the tartness of cranberries and they are balanced with a very sweet chewy cake.

You Will Need:

3 Large Eggs
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
3/4 Cups Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
12 Ounces Fresh Cranberries

What to Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F (177 C)
2. Beat the eggs and sugar until slightly thickened (about 5 to 7 minutes) and the mixture is almost double in size.
3. Add the butter and vanilla and mix for 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the flour until just combined.
5. Add rinsed fresh cranberries and mix gently.
6. Spread in a buttered 9 x 13 baking pan.
7. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or lightly brown. Cool completely before slicing.
