Recipe by CountryLady

This is my favourite bar-type cookie from Company's Coming! After you've tried it, you'll understand why.

I made this square many times ,many years ago and had lost the recipe. Besides being such a fabulous square it brings back many memories. I am so happy to have this recipe among my favorites once again. I added red and green candied cherries. Turned out perfect. Thanks CountryLady.
