Stir in cranberries and pecans. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 25 min or until just a few moist crumbs cling to tester. Let cool in pan on rack. Cut into squares. Drizzle with melted white chocolate for a decorative touch (if using).

Tips

When purchasing white chocolate, make sure cocoa butter is high on the ingredient list. Other types of white chocolate will not give the right texture in baking.

For the Adventurous:For a different flavour, substitute dried apricots for cranberries and toasted chopped hazelnuts for pecans.
