These cherry bars are very impressive to look at, and I love the fact that the recipe calls for real cherries rather than pie filling. As written, I thought they weren't quite sweet enough. I imagine they'd be fantastic with white chocolate on top as suggested in the recipe note. Next time, I'll increase the sugar to 1 cup, and drizzle with a white chocolate ganache. Thanks very much!

This is the best cherry bar ever! I used marschino cherries once and it was just as good!

Hi - I live in WI and Eagle is not in Door County. There is an Eagle, WI, but it is in Waukesha County. I grew up going to Door County and wonder what town these came out of, could it be Egg Harbor? A mystery! Just fyi - Door County is famous for cherries and any recipe with them is amazing, in my book! Thanks for sharing.

These tasted great, but even an hour after sticking in the oven, they were still runny inside. Maybe I did something wrong, but I followed the recipe exactly. I did use an oven thermometer. At 350, the top was done, but underneath was a runny mess. I just dumped it in a bowl and called it cherry cobbler!

Tender, delicious cherry bars. You can't stop eating them because they're light. The instructions "beat flour-sugar-butter until smooth was little confusing. Will make again. Thanks for posting!

We thought this recipe was very good. The crust was very flakey and buttery tasting. Great recipe. Thanks for posting.
