Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cheese Bars (tried ‘n true)

I made these for the family last week. They turned out terrific. The flavor combinations are just perfect. And so easy – I think they may be a nice addition to next season’s Christmas cookie list. Brown sugar, butter and oatmeal, combined with chocolate chips and cranberries, all fused together with a cream cheese filling. YUM!!!
