I have been looking for some recipes on pinterest and baked one and it was DELICIOUS. Now it's time to share it with y'all.
This recipe is not my own. The original recipe is from Skinny Mom. I did alter a little bit, I like having some orange with the cranberry, the original recipe did not call for it.
For the Frosting:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13 inch non-stick baking pan with cooking spray.
In another bowl, whisk the sugars with the butter, egg whites, applesauce and vanilla until light and fluffy.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir to blend.
Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in two additions until the batter is very well blended.
Fold in white chocolate chips and 1/3 cup cranberries. Spread batter into the greased baking pan.
Bake 10 - 14 minutes, until the edges are light brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let it cool completely on wire rack.
Meanwhile, prepare the frosting; in a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, fresh orange zest, and vanilla until well-blended.
Frost the bars once they are cool and sprinkle with remaining cranberries. Drizzle with the melted white chocolate.
Then cut each square in half diagonally to create triangles. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve chilled, it tastes better!
