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.
Country Lady these cherry squares are so delicious! I used maraschino cherries in mine. I also doubled the top layer recipe and replaced the water with the maraschino cherry juice so that the top layer was light pink. These looked very pretty on my cookie platter that I had arranged for our Christmas dinner. Thanks!
Oh boy, were these ever great! I didn't have candied cherries, so I use marachinos and they turned out wonderfully. The icing recipe was just the perfect amount too. Thanks for posting a great addtion to my Christmas baking tray!
These were simply delicious CL! Made as directed and topped off with red and green cherries...perfect treats for the holidays, or anytime! These are rich but very good....Thanks for sharing another winner...Kitten:)
Looking for an additional holiday treat recipe, I went online at found this -- JUST WONDERFUL!!
Very rich! It took an extra few minutes in the oven. To improve the ease of cutting, I put them in the refrigerator after putting on the icing. Garnished them with walnuts, and halved red and green cheries. They will make an attractive addition to my Christmas trays.
Love this recipe! My 'Christmas Stash' is now being refereed to as my pre holiday temptations to serve to family and friends. Cherry Squares is a great addition to the serving tray, especially at holiday time. I highly recommend adding this recipe to your holiday baking list when looking for something new to add to your favorites.
I make these all the time and they truly are delicious! This is a recipe you people just have to try! I have used both maraschino and candied cherries with great results on both accounts. This is a great bar! Good with pecans too instead of walnuts.
