I give this 3 stars because even tho the cranberry part of the recipe is good, the amount of water the recipe directs to add to the crust is way too little for the crust to "form a ball" and the egg is kind of strange - not sure if this is supposed to be like biscuit or pie crust. I added 6 T of water, and it still didn't really form a ball, but my assumption was that it should be pressed into the pan like a graham cracker crust so that's what I did. The cranberry-orange "filling" is good. I think in the future if I made these again I would make a vanilla wafer or maybe lemon cooler crust with chopped almonds or hazelnuts and prebake, add the filling, and then just sprinkle some additional roasted nuts on top and finish baking. I would also line the pan with parchment since even tho I greased the pan very well, it was difficult to get the bars cut and out of the pan. In the end they came out ok and taste good, but not sold on the crust.
This is an excellent recipe so good for Christmas but you will need to knead dough before crumble on cranberry mixture
