These were pretty good, but a little bland. I would maybe add some cinnamon to the crust/streusel topping. Also, after sitting out for a while they became a little wet and soggy. Keeping them chilled is a must.



I can't go higher than 4 stars as-is. It's "good," not great. I doubled the cranberries per other suggestions, and believe that is necessary. I think I'll double the cream cheese next time & add an egg to make it more of a "real" cheese cake center, and I'll add some cinnamon to the crust/topping per previous comments. but I will try it again this holiday season until I find the right combo of ingredients!



This recipe is a good one - I like it and my coworkers LOVE it. Probably would be better with homemade cranberry sauce if you have it leftover(especially since I make mine with OJ - that would make these heavenly!) Some tweaking: I added half-teaspoon or so of cinnamon and a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice to the crust - good flavor! Also, I only put about 3/4 cup of oats into the crust initially, and added more flour to make up for it. I think this made for a sturdier crust. I mixed an additional 1/4 cup of oats into just the topping part, to give it some crunch. I also sprinkled the top with additional brown sugar to give it more color.
