Cherry Cranberry Shortbread Bars

Pin It



I am not a big fan of Shortbread, but my family loves it so every holiday to please the crowd I make something with shortbread in it.
I try to combine it with tasty filling or icing because if you ask me…… plain…..old shortbread is just boring.
This year I decided to make Cherry Cranberry Shortbread Bars.
The Cherry Cranberry filling between the layers of shortbread gives it just the right amount of sweet tartness and moisture to bring this shortbread from boring to fabulous.



Cherry Cranberry Shortbread Bars




  • 3/4 cup Butter (softened & unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 can Cherry Cranberry Pie Filling (540ml)
  • 3/4 cup Butter (softened & unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease 9 x 13″ pan.

STEP 2: In a bowl cut together the butter, sugar and flour till you have well combined , but crumbly dough. Press the dough evenly into the greased pan.

STEP 3: Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let it cool for 5 minutes.

STEP 4: Meanwhile in a bowl cut together the butter, brown sugar and flour for the top crust.

STEP 5: Spread the pie filling on top of the shortbread bottom crust. Sprinkle it evenly with the top shortbread crust mixture and gently press down.

STEP 6: Bake for another 30-35 minutes. Cool it down completely before cutting into bars otherwise it will crumble a lot.
Tip: I freeze my Cherry Cranberry Shortbread Bars before cutting them.
