The sweet hint of almond flavor in combination with tart cranberries makes this recipe a hit every time, and it’s easy to make – everyone wins!
We serve cranberry squares every chance we get. When visitors come by to tour the bogs, events and shows, family gatherings, etc.
It’s also a great recipe to get kids involved in the kitchen. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, or teacher, the easy measurements and quick simple steps make it fun for little hands to get involved.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous use Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries Plus Blueberries to add an extra flavor to your squares.
Do not thaw cranberries. Thawed cranberries will break and bleed into the batter and make it pink!
Hand mix the batter for a denser square, like a brownie. If you want a more cake-like square use an electric hand mixer.
Whisk butter, eggs, and almond flavoring in mixing bowl. Slowly add flour and sugar until a batter begins to form. Add 3 cups of Cape Cod Select® cranberries (berries may be fresh or frozen with no thawing necessary). Fold batter until most cranberries are covered in batter. Spray 13 X 9 baking pan with cooking spray. Once prepared spread batter evenly in pan and bake for 1 hour. If you like your edges crispy, let it bake until the top is completely golden brown.
