(120 calories | 7 7 7 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Here's a lighter streamlined version of cranberry white chocolate cookie bars that you can make in your slow cooker.
I saw the recipe as I was flipping through an old Pillsbury Healthy Recipe Booklet from 1998 and decided to bake a batch of crock pot cookie bars.
The Skinny on Cranberry White Chocolate Crock Pot Cookie Bars
Made with fresh cranberries, white chocolate morsels and nuts, then drizzled with a simple powdered sugar glaze, they're a more sensible, retro version of Starbuck's 340 calorie seasonal Cranberry Bliss Bars.
Baked in a round pan and then cut into pretty little wedges, these cranberry white chocolate crock pot cookie bars would be a welcome addition to your holiday cookie tray.
According to my calculations, each little wedge has 120 calories and:

Cranberry White Chocolate Crock Pot Cookie Bars
- ¼ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1-½ teaspoons vanilla
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- ¼ cup chopped nuts (I used pistachios)
- ⅓ cup powdered sugar
- 1 to 2 teaspoons water
- Grease a small baking pan that will fit in your slow cooker. I used an 8-inch round pan and my 6-Quart oval slow cooker.
- Place a trivet in your slow cooker or make one by rolling up foil into a coil.
- In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, brown sugar and butter until well blended. Add the vanilla and egg and mix until creamy.
- Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level off. Add the flour, baking powder, cranberries, white chocolate chips and nuts. Stir until well mixed.
- With the back of a spoon press the dough evenly into the prepared baking pan.
- Place the pan on the trivet in the slow cooker.
- Cover and prop the lid open at one end with a wooden spoon handle or chopstick to let steam escape.
- Cook on HIGH, until edges are golden and set in the middle, 2 to 3 hours. (Mine were done in 2-½ hours.)
- When finished cooking, remove the pan from the slow cooker and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
- In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and water to make a glaze. Drizzle glaze over the cooled bars.
- When cool, cut into 16 small wedges.
