Directions

  1. Beat 3 cups confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until frosting is smooth. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate while preparing cake.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  3. Beat brown sugar and butter together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until smooth; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until smooth. Stir 2 tablespoons ginger, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and salt into brown sugar-butter mixture until incorporated.
  4. Beat flour and baking powder into brown sugar-butter mixture until batter is smooth; fold in 3/4 cup dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cake is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool cake completely, 4 hours to overnight. Remove frosting from refrigerator 1 hour before frosting the cake.
  6. Spread frosting evenly over cake; sprinkle with 1/4 cup dried cranberries and 2 tablespoons ginger.
  7. Whisk 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and cream together in a bowl until smooth; drizzle over frosted cake. Cover cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
  8. Cut cake in half lengthwise and each half into 8 equal rectangles. Cut each rectangle in half diagonally, creating 16 triangle-shaped bars.

Delicious! Just like the ones at Starbucks, but better!

This is a really sweet treat, but if you have had the one from Starbucks, this one should be no surprise. I would recommend cutting differently so that you get several small bites, rather than b...

These are delicious but do not resemble the cranberry bliss bars in Vancouver Canada.

I didn't have enough lemon juice for the frosting so I used peppermint extract & more vanilla to make up the difference. I also doubled the recipe & baked it in a 13x18 jelly roll pan. I also...

Very good everyone loves,,,,but it is work

I made this for our Christmas gathering and my family also found this recipe way too sweet, except for the younger children. I probably will not make this recipe again. If I do I will decrease ...

This is a good recipe. I gave it 4 stars because the icing on top made it too sweet. I'll drop it next time I make this and I'll add one more tablespoon of lemon juice in the frosting to make it...
