Cranberry Orange Crumble Bars
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Zest and juice of one orange
  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 3 Tbs instant tapioca
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and prepare a 9x13 inch baking dish with a little grease.
  2. Sift together your dry ingredients in a medium bowl including: 1 cup sugar, 3 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the orange zest. Using your fingers or a fork cut in the butter then mix in the egg until a crumble dough forms. Pour half of the dough into the prepared baking dish and press into the pan.
  3. In a medium bowl toss together the cranberries, orange juice, sugar and tapioca until well combined. Let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes. Pour the cranberry mixture over the crust so that it covers the surface area evenly. Scatter the remaining crumbly dough over the cranberry mixture until it is all evenly distributed.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cut into equal square pieces and serve. These will last about 2-3 days.
