The sweet hint of almond flavor in combination with tart cranberries makes this recipe a hit every time, and it’s easy to make – everyone wins!
We serve cranberry squares every chance we get. When visitors come by to tour the bogs, events and shows, family gatherings, etc. 

It’s also a great recipe to get kids involved in the kitchen. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, babysitter, or teacher, the easy measurements and quick simple steps make it fun for little hands to get involved. 

If you’re feeling a little adventurous use Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries Plus Blueberries to add an extra flavor to your squares. 

Help Hints: 

Do not thaw cranberries. Thawed cranberries will break and bleed into the batter and make it pink! 

Hand mix the batter for a denser square, like a brownie. If you want a more cake-like square use an electric hand mixer.



2 Sticks Melted Or Softened Butter
2 Cups Flour
2 Cups Sugar
3 Eggs
2 Tsp. Almond Flavoring
3 Cups Cape Cod Select Frozen Cranberries


Preheat oven to 350℉.

Whisk butter (softened or melted), eggs, and almond flavoring in mixing bowl. Slowly add flour and sugar until a batter begins to form. Add 3 cups of Cape Cod Select® cranberries. Berries may be fresh or frozen with no thawing or slicing necessary. Fold batter until cranberries are covered in batter. Spray 13 X 9 baking pan with cooking spray. Once prepared spread batter evenly in pan and bake at 350℉ for 1 hour. If you like your edges crispy, let it bake until the top is completely golden brown.
