I really liked these bars. I try to avoid too much sugar. Every once in a while its nice to have a treat. I don't feel guilty eating these. The sugar amount is just fine for me because I'm not used to sweet things but I agree there could be more cranberry filling. That probably equates into a bit more sugar. I'll make them again with those changes.
The bag of cranberries I used was 12 ounces, not 10 as the recipe calls for. So my bars had a heavier proportion of cranberries which provided more flavor. I liked the bars, but would add more butter next time so the crust would hold together better.
Aw, I wanted to really love these! Instead, they're only pretty good. The proportions are off a bit in terms of crust to cranberries. The crust is good but there's too much of it, probably to compensate for the tartness of the berries. If I make this again, I'd sweeten the fruit filling a bit more and decrease the crust. Best served warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
