1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup halved Ocean Spray Fresh Cranberries

Cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating until thoroughly blended. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir the vanilla into the milk. Add dry ingredients alternately with the milk, mixing well after each addition. Fold in halved cranberries. Pour into greased 8″x 8″ square cake pan.

Fresh frozen cranberries don’t stick together, are easier to cut, chop or grind while still frozen.
