This icing would work well with sugar cookies too. It sets up well and tastes good and can be tinted. I made 15 mini-loaves for Christmas boxes with this recipe and I really liked the flavor of the bread and the icing.

White Chocolate Iced Cranberry Bread
Pillsbury Holiday Baking Nov2003
2 1/4 c A/P flour
3/4 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 c dried cranberries
3/4 c half and half
2 t grated orange peel
2 eggs
1/2 c butter or margarine, melted
1/4 c orange juice

1 oz white chocolate, chopped
1-2 T half and half
1/2 c powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350. Grease bottom only of 8X4 inch loaf pan**. In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well and stir in cranberries.
In small bowl, combine 3/4c half and half, orange peel and eggs. beat well. Add this and orange juice and melted butter to flour mixture, stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into greased pan.
Bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes or until deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. cool in pan for 10 minutes. Run knife around edges of pan to loosen. Remove loaf from pan, place on wire rack to cool.
Icing: In small microwave safe bowl, combine baking bar and 1T of the half and half. Microwave on High for 30 seconds, stir until melted and smooth. With wire whisk, beat in powdered sugar until smooth. If necessary, add additional half and half until of desired consistency. Spoon and spread icing over cooled loaf, allowing some to run down sides.

My note: I made this in the food processor, combining the wet ingredients first, then adding the dry and last the cranberries.

**Makes 3 mini loaves, bake for 35-45 minutes.
