This recipe was passed on to me from my sister. It's a perfect holiday treat for Christmas or Easter. Frost with your favorite confectioners' sugar icing. Sprinkle with additional chopped nuts if desired. These freeze well.

  • Mix 2 cups flour, butter, and white sugar together into a smooth dough in a large bowl. Press evenly into prepared pan to make crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is lightly golden, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

  • Whisk eggs in a large bowl until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well until smooth. Fold in walnuts and maraschino cherries. Spread filling over baked crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove oven and allow to cool completely, 30 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute pecans for the walnuts if preferred.

Use an electric mixer to make the filling if preferred.
