    These make a tasty treat. I was a little worried that my jelly roll pan was going too big, but it worked out fine. I did use parchment paper and I'm glad I did. The edges, which were not completely covered with the parchment paper kind of stuck to the pan. So be sure to grease your pan! I baked mine for about 30 minutes and they turned out just fine. They do have to cool down quite a bit to cut into nice squares. We liked the glaze, too. They are sweet but that's what a dessert is supposed to be! Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.

    I wish these had turned out better. They burned a bit, even at such a low oven temp. It may have been from the sugar in the cherry filling. The glaze is very sweet. The cake part on the inside was very good. I wouldn't use thew glaze and probably take them out sooner next time. Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe Tag :)

    I love the cake part, but not thrilled with the cherries or glaze - it kind of puts it at a teeth aching sweet taste. Still, this is a great recipe - very easy to make and pretty on a serving tray as well. Made for the Tic Tac Toe Game.

    GREAT TASTING CHERRY TREAT, although I'll admit that I only used about half of the glaze! Loved the squares, & will be making them again, but I might try a streusel topping antoher time just to see how it works! Thanks for posting the recipe!
