Use up that Cranberry Sauce

Thanksgiving is over and you still have cranberry sauce leftover. Yeah! Lucky you! Now you can make these yummy bars. They also could double as a coffee cake and are so delicious you should invite someone over for coffee to share!

Cranberry Bars

2 eggs
1 stick butter
1 1/2 c sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 t almond extract
1 t baking powder
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c leftover cranberry sauce - any style

Beat together the eggs, softened butter, sugar, vanilla and almond. Add flour and baking powder. Mix well. Spread 3/4 into a lightly prepared 9X13 inch pan. Spread the cranberry sauce over the top. Using the last 1/4 of the batter, drop it by spoonfuls over the top covering as much as you can.

Bake at 350 for approximately 40-45 minutes until just golden and the center is done. Prepare a simple powdered sugar glaze (powdered sugar, milk and almond extract) to drizzle over the top of the cooled bars.
