It is definitely cranberry season! If you don’t get your cranberry fix at Thanksgiving dinner you can get it with this recipe.
You can used dried cranberries or change it up a bit and used dried pomegranate or dried cherries. I found both of them right next to the dried cranberries.
You have a creamy, yummy layer of dried cranberries, sugar and sour cream nestled in between layers of crunch oats, brown sugar and butter.
A great combination of flavor and texture.
