Cranberries and orange…….a match made in heaven…….or in Cranberry Orange Brownies!

Tart ruby red and delicious cranberries, harvested from bogs when cold weather arrives and available throughout the winter months. Fresh cranberries are a signature fresh fruit of autumn and early winter.

The combination of tart cranberries sweetened with oranges, another fruit of winter, is a classic flavor pairing in baking.

Blond brownies are a tasty treat in their own right, but add the tart of the cranberry and sweet bright citrus of the orange, and you have a fall dessert treat that is sure to please.

A basic brownie batter…butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, a bit of orange flavoring, those beautiful berries, and orange zest. Sprinkled with a bit of my favorite turbaned sugar that gives a nice sugary crunch to the top. Baked to a perfect golden brown.

Cranberry Orange Bownies are gooey, chewy, tart and sweet. The perfect fall dessert!
