I am so excited to be sharing a recipe that I created for the Cape Cod Select Holiday Blogger Recipe Challenge a few years ago. 

A rustic cranberry-orange-pecan cobbler roll that is perfect to serve as a Thanksgiving dessert.

This Rustic Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Cobbler Roll was my entry.  I did not win anything, but my family won by having this cobbler to eat!

It is perfect to add to your Thanksgiving dessert table.



Streusel Topped Cranberry-Eggnog Cake Bars will melt in your mouth! streusel-topped-cranberry-eggnog-cake-bars

This is an easy and delicious recipe to get your fall baking started.  Last year at the end of the holiday season I had some eggnog and some cranberries leftover so this recipe was created.

The base is a box of yellow cake mix with additional ingredients including eggnog.  It is topped with fresh cranberries, a streusel topping and baked. 

To add even more goodness, a glaze is drizzled over it at the end.

This recipe is excellent to serve for large groups or for taking to a  covered dish as it makes 40 bars.
