What a great quick, easy, and versatile recipe. I took it to a Church social last night. It was a real hit. I used strawberry preserves. It was so good, I was invited to lunch after Church tomorrow. I have to bring a copy of the recipe. Recipes like this are getting this grandfather known as a good cook. I try to take something different and unique to each social or pot-luck. Last night, one lady asked, "What did Angel bring?" Another replied, "It doesn't matter, you know it'll be good." Thanks!

My hubby, who doesn't like cherries, said this was "very good"! I healthified it a bit - low sugar cake mix (he is diabetic) and a 14 oz can of whole pitted no sugar added cherries, which I drained, reserving juice, blended the cherries, substituting them for the preserves and the juice for the water! It was a 1/4 gone before it had cooled and my teens weren't even home yet!

What a nice addition to my file of bar recipes! These were great & were well-received by guests last evening! I did change one thing a bit, by adding almost 1/3 cup of dried cherries to the preserves, making things a little more chewy! Thanks much for posting this recipe!
