Cranberry Orange Holiday Bars Recipe are gluten free with gooey sweet tart flavor | ahealthylifeforme.comThree days until Christmas.  Do you have all your presents purchased, wrapped and under the tree?  I have a few more that should (fingers crossed) arrive today.  Thank you, Amazon.

My baking is done, though I will probably whip up a few more batches of cookies today or tomorrow.  Baking is kind of therapy for me, it is comforting because it is familiar and I end up with something sweet and delicious when I am done.

Speaking of sweet and delicious these bars deliver, plus you have the tartness of cranberries that add that extra layer of flavor.  A perfect recipe to share with friends and family over the holidays, or all by yourself.

I partnered with the awesome folks at The Epicurious Community Table and Reynolds  Make Meal Magic, to create this recipe and shoot a video showing you how easy and quick these Cranberry Orange Holiday Bar are to make, thanks to Reynolds® Cookie Baking Sheets Non-Stick Parchment Paper.  They made cooking these bars a snap.

We all need things to be quicker, easier and more enjoyable in the kitchen, especially during the holidays when we want to spend more time with our family.

Thank you, Reynolds, for making a product that lets us spend more time with family and less time in the kitchen.  I hope you enjoy making these bars and you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.
