Hi everyone! Hopefully you are ALL having a wonderful 2013 so far. My name is Michelle and I blog over at Michelle’s Tasty Creations. I am a SAHM to two wonderful kids and married to my best friend.

Please stop by and visit for a while. www.michellestastycreations.com I want to say a big Thank You to Jamie! I love getting to know other bloggers readers and meet new people, so thanks for this awesome opportunity Jamie! I've brought over one of my most requested dessert recipes ~ Enjoy :)
Here is the most requested recipe (and best seller) from the good ole' days of Michelle's Mixes :) Cranberry White Chocolate Bars.
I love bar cookies because they are fun to make, have just as much flavor as cookies, and don't require me to stand in the kitchen changing out baking sheets every 8 - 10 minutes. These bars are chewy, tender, and full of flavor. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
Here's what you need:
2 cups baking mix (I use Bisquick)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup Craisins
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 9 or 7 x 11 baking dish with parchment and spray with cooking spray and set aside.
In a small bowl mix the egg, melted butter or margarine, and vanilla. Set aside.
In a medium bowl mix the baking mix, and the rest of the ingredients well.
Add the egg mixture and mix until combined. The dough will be thick.
Press the dough into a 9 x 9 or 7 x 11 prepared baking dish. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Do not over bake. You want the middle to be soft and chewy.
Cool in pan then run a knife around the edge to release the sides and lift out of the dish. Cut into squares and serve.
Serves approximately 24
