In the mood for something festive?

These cranberry squares are the perfect dessert for your next holiday gathering!

They’re easy to make, and everyone will love the sweet and tart flavor.

Hope you enjoy!

You will need 3 eggs, 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 cups all-purpose flour and 12 oz fresh cranberries.

If you are gluten free and dairy free like I am, just switch out the butter for non dairy butter, and switch out the flour for gluten free flour.

My favorite gluten free flour is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free One to One Flour.

It’s by far the best gluten free flour.

You can get it here.

With a mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes.

This step is so much easier with a stand mixer instead of a hand mixer.

Get a stand mixer here.

The mixture should almost double in size.

This step is super important, don’t skip it.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
