This is my favourite bar-type cookie from Company's Coming! After you've tried it, you'll understand why.

directions

  • FIRST LAYER: Crumble ingredients together well.
  • Press into ungreased 9 x 9 inch pan.
  • Bake in preheated 350F oven for 15 minutes.
  • SECOND LAYER: Beat eggs slightly; add remaining ingredients in the order listed.
  • If using maraschino cherries, drain well.
  • I prefer using candied cherries- at Christmas, I use a mixture of red& green.
  • Spread over first layer& return to oven for 25 minutes.
  • Let cool completely.
  • TOP LAYER: Beat ingredients in a small bowl, adding more water if necessary to make a more spreadable mixture.
  • This makes a minimum amount of icing to spread over top.

    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!
