This is the tenth in our monthlong series, 12 Days of Cookies, featuring classic and inventive recipes from across the country.

All month, we've been sending out a variety of holiday cookie recipes from some of our favorite chefs across the country. While putting these recipes through the rigors of testing and tasting in our New York City Test Kitchen, our food editors realized there was one type of cookie missing: the bar kind. A cookie in spirit, if not name, we roasted tart, ruby-red cranberries with maple sugar, cinnamon, ginger and cloves before sandwiching them between layers of buttery streusel. To see these bars in action, click here to view a video from Tasting Table and our television partner, Plum TV.
