Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together flour, salt, soda and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light-colored and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well-combined after each addition.
  5. Beat in vanilla extract.
  6. Gradually mix in dry ingredients, beating just until incorporated.
  7. With a spoon or rubber spatula, stir in nuts, cherries and chocolate morsels.
  8. Spread into a 1/4 sheet pan, 15" x 10" (or two 11' x 7" brownie pans) and bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Cool in the pan on a wire rack and cut into bars about 2" x 1.25".
  10. Stir last three ingredients together to make a thin glaze, adding more liquid if necessary. Drizzle glaze over cooled bars and allow to harden before serving.
  11. Note: Glaze can be easily changed to suit your taste. Swap the milk for water, cherry juice, almond milk, or a flavored liqueur. Swap the almond extract for another flavor, or leave it out entirely if using a flavored liquid.
