Sweets?

This is the recipe that did work and I did bring for the New Year's party.  It came from Cooking Light magazine and healthy it is but it also tastes amazing!  A mere 133 calories per square....not bad.

Cranberry-Oatmeal Bars

crust:
1 Cup flour
1 Cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1/2 packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
6 T. butter, melted
3 T. orange juice
cooking spray

filling:
1  1/3 Cups dried cranberries
3/4 C sour cream
1/2 C sugar
2 T. flour
1 stop vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. grated orange rind
1 large egg white, beaten

1)  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2) To prepare crust:  Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through cinnamon) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk.  Drizzle butter and juice over flour mixture, stirring until moistened (mixture will be crumbly).  Reserve 1/2 cup oat mixture.  Press remaining oat mixture into the bottom of 8 x8 baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.




3)  To prepare filling:  Combine cranberries, sour cream, sugar and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well.  Spread cranberry mixture over prepared crust; sprinkle reserved oat mixture evenly over filling.



4)  Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes or until edges are golden.  Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
