DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and butter an 8 x 8" square baking pan.
  • BOTTOM LAYER: Combine 1 cup of flour, the butter, and the confectioners' sugar in a bowl.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Pat mixture into the prepared pan with fingers, and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
  • TOP LAYER (THIS SHOULD BE MADE WHILE THE BOTTOM LAYER IS IN THE OVEN): In a small bowl, toss frozen cherries with vanilla; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, slightly beat the eggs.
  • Gradually add the sugar and beat until they are thick and light.
  • Add the remaining 1/4 cup flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl and stir with a spoon until blended.
  • Stir in the walnuts and cherry-vanilla mixture.
  • Immediately spread the cherry mixture over the hot bottom layer and return the pan to the oven.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the bars are a deep golden brown.
  • Allow to cool in the pan on a wire rack before serving.
