Wow! Such an incredible tasty roundup of Thanksgiving recipes, Jennifer! I’ve made a cranberry swirl cheesecake before, but I simply must try your bars. They look scrumptious! Thanks ever so much for including my recipe for Gluten Free White Cheddar & Herb Beer Bread. It truly does make a terrific gluten free turkey stuffing. Happy to be part of such a talented bunch. Thanks again, my friend. Have a fabulous week! xo
