    Diana #2's Note:

    This is a very 'tasty & showy' treat, which is a staple on my "Christmas" baking list. Cut into small pieces. That way you can have two without feeling guilty. Don't be put off by the amount of ingredients. This comes together very quickly. Almost too quickly : )

      Nice combination of flavors. I used frozen sweet cherries in place of the maraschino cherries. They were quite sweet so I left off the icing. Next time I will reduce the sugar in the crust and filling. Thank you for the recipe.

      These are lovely gooey bars Diana. I did enjoy them more once we put them in the fridge to chill. All the flavors really bounced. I had a little difficulty cutting and taking them out of the pan. Next time, I will cook them a little longer. Thanks so much for sharing.
