Cooking Instructions

Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13 x 9 x 2-inch metal baking pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat vegetable oil spread and brown sugar on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add quick bread mix and the clear packet of cinnamon swirl (reserve foil glaze packet for later use), orange juice, egg and vanilla. Beat just until blended. Add oats, pistachios and cranberries. Mix at low speed just until combined. Spread evenly into prepared pan. Bake 30 to 34 minutes or until edges are golden brown and wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Squeeze reserved foil packet from mix about 10 times. Cut tip off one corner of packet; squeeze glaze decoratively over cookies in pan. Cut into squares or bars.


Baker's Notes: Walnuts or pecans may be substituted for pistachios.
