The baking is finished. Whew!
Cranberry squares. I don't get to make these as often as I would like, since I'm the only person in the house that can eat cranberries. I love them, though, and my mother used to make them, so they're a Christmastime favourite, and if we're having company, I get to make them. They're essentially date squares (or, if you prefer, matrimonial cake) with cranberry filling instead of dates. Less sweet, very festive.
Ginger snaps are a little more festive with red sugar on them...
I've said it before, but there must be shortbread!
I'm ready. Hang the stockings.
