I got this recipe from my mother--she used to make it for club meetings and church functions when I was younger. Now my kids like it too! One thing to note--there is no baking soda or baking powder in this recipe--the beaten eggs make it rise.

I made these during the holidays and they were a great hit with our whole (large) family. We love cherries in any form, and these are a great addition. I made the recipe exactly as written but rather than sprinkling powdered sugar over the top I drizzled a glaze over them. The recipe makes a nice amount, depending on the size squares you cut. I gave the recipe out to several people already, so it is definitely a "keeper."
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
Directions See How It's Made
- Cream butter and sugar; add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add all other ingredients except cherry pie filling and beat well. Spread batter into a 10 X 15 jelly roll pan that has been greased and floured or sprayed with cooking spray. Spread cherry pie filling on top of batter in spoonfuls making 4 rows the length of the pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes. May sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with powdered sugar icing when done baking.
