Cranberry-Date Bars



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil, extending the foil up and over the edges of the pan. Lightly coat foil with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine biscuit mix and cardamom; stir in dates, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar and beat until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in dry mixture just until combined.
  3. Spread dough evenly in prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until top is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  4. To serve, remove baked mixture from pan by lifting foil. Place on a cutting board; cut into bars. Dust with powdered sugar. Makes 20 bars.
