Whole wheat cranberry triangles

The temperatures are dipping in our neck of the woot; autumn is in full swing!

Autumn in the hood!

Having said that, there have been mild days every now and then. Probably the main reason why some of the garden beauties that would usually disappear during this time of the year are still sticking around. Not that I’m complaining!

It’s almost December and we are probably allowed to say the ‘C’ word? I must admit I’m really looking forward to the Christmas holidays and having a full house when the kids come back from their respective universities. Family and food, after all, isn’t that the best part of a festive season!

Speaking of food, these whole wheat cranberry triangles were made quite some time ago; well it’s another recipe that I managed to salvage from my ‘notebook’. And luckily I had the pictures to go with it too! So it was a win-win situation. Not sure what ‘notebook’ I’m referring to ? Read all about it here.

This is an easy recipe. You basically make the dough, chill, cut and bake! So, do give them a try.
