Cranberry Nut Bars are a great way to use leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving. The original version calls for walnuts, but pecans work well.
To toast the nuts, lay them on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 6 minutes or until the start to release their oils and become shiny.
For thinner bars, bake in a 9 inch square pan.
To make cranberry nut crisps, slice the baked square into thin (about 1/3 of an inch) slices and bake in a 300 degree oven for about 20 to 28 minutes or until the crisps just barely start to brown around the edges. Let them cool (they'll become crisper as they cool) on a wire rack).
