Cranberry Brownie Recipe

3/4 cup butter softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup fresh cranberries or if you don't like them use assorted dried fruits , chopped dates, figs, raisins or coconut; For the use of fresh fruits, I use around 1 1/2 cups and choose from  blueberries, pineapple, apples, pears, peaches, dates, mango any kind of fruit you like just make sure it's blotted dry and folded in last
2/3 cups chopped pecans
powder sugar which is optional for dusting the tops


Beat the butter and sugar together for 4 minutes and in the meantime preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 13x9 sheet cake pan with parchment paper or greased.
Next beat in the eggs into the sugar mixture and slowly stir in flour and rest of ingredients (except for the powdered sugar) folding in the berries last. Bake until the middle is set and tooth pick comes out clean in the center around 45 minutes.  Cool cut and dust with powdered sugar.
