My favorite dessert of all-time may be lemons bars. I love anything lemon but there’s something extra special about that tart flavor paired with a flaky, sweet, buttery crust that has my heart.
I spent some time thinking about how I could create an easy Thanksgiving recipe for you that isn’t pumpkin related. As I thought about how tart cranberries tend to be I realized I just might be able to turn them into a tart yet sweet dessert that rivaled a lemon bar.
And indeed it worked!
This recipe is not only perfect as a pumpkin pie alternative but any time during the fall. It’s fantastic to make ahead and bring with you to any gatherings to share.
