    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F

      For base, lightly butter an 8 inch square baking dish. In a bowl, using a fork, stir flour with sugar. Work in butter until coarse crumbs form. Press over bottom of buttered dish. Bake in centre of oven until light golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove, but leave oven on.

      While base is baking, in a small bowl, using a fork, stir flour with salt and baking powder. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Using a wooden spoon, stir in sugar and vanilla until evenly mixed. Then stir in walnuts, cherries, coconut and flour mixture. Spread over warm base. Bake in centre of oven until topping is golden and slightly jiggly, 20 to 30 minutes.

      Yum-Yum is right! Rich, decadent & Christmasy! (although, I will be making these all year round when a special treat is desired!!) I used margarine instead of butter in the base but followed the recipe other than that. I used the maximum baking times. These bars are gooey & tasty!!

      Delicious! I omitted the coconut due to personal preference. It was very sweet but oh-so-good. I love cherries so I knew this would be good!

      These were really yummy and very sweet.They remind me of a pecan pie. My top layer was a little too "wet" after 30 minutes in the oven, but I'm sure it was due to my uncalibrated oven. Thanks for another great recipe Redsie!
