What is the holiday without some Cranberry Bliss Bars?! We of course had to create a fun twist on the tradition with some lavender.
Lavender Cranberry Bliss Bar
1 pkg. Lavender Shortbread Cookie Mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup craisins
4 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp orange extract
1/2 tsp lavender extract
1/4 cup craisins, chopped
1 square almond bark, melted
Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Prepare a 8x8 square baking pan or a regular tart pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine shortbread cookie mix, melted butter, 1 egg, orange extract, white chocolate chips and craisins. Stir until combined and place into your baking dish. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Place on wire rack to cool.
While your bars are baking assemble the frosting by adding to a mixing bowl softened cream cheese and powdered sugar. Blend until smooth and then add orange and lavender extract and stir until combined. With frosting frost your cooled bars and top with chopped cranberries and drizzle with melted white chocolate or almond bark.
Cut into triangles and serve.
