Top it off

Here's an addition to my Cranberry Squares recipe, recommended by a reader: spread a lemon topping after you take the dish out of the oven and before you cut into squares.

The topping:

Grated lemon rind from 1 lemon
1 1/2 TB butter
1 1/2 TB lemon juice
1/2 cup powdered sugar

In case you missed the basic recipe last Tuesday:

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1 1/4 cups whole cranberries
2 eggs
walnuts optional

Mix everything together (my favorite instruction!)

Batter will be STICKY. Don't worry.

Spread in greased dish, 8x8 or 9x9 and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes.
