Thursday Holiday Flare- Desserts

As I have mentioned I have been taking some cooking technique classes at William-Sonoma. This week she had a dessert that was adapted from another recipe. Their Food products are very good. This recipes uses their Cranberry relish. I found it not to be too sweet, yet had that holiday flare taste to it. My teen daughter went with me and she really liked this recipe. So, we came home and made it. I did add my Flare to it,however it is a basic dessert square bar recipe. Now I will share it with you, we think it will make that perfect ending to a Thanksgiving Meal.

I used an insulated non stick pan}.

  • Mix well and pour evenly over the Pressed cake layer in the pan.
Third layer(topping)
