  • In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in almond extract. Fold in flour until just blended. Spread batter into prepared pan. With the tip of a knife, mark squares in the batter. Spoon equal portions of pie filling in the center of each square.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool, then dust with confectioners' sugar.

I got this off of a recipe card in the mail from Great American Recipes. There's an ingredient missing that might make a difference - 2 tsp. of baking powder that needs to be added to the flour mixture. This can be baked in a 9x13 pan at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes. Read More

My mom has made this simple, wonderful recipe for years! She calls it "Cherry Squares." Her recipe calls for 1 Tbl. lemon juice, but other than that, this recipe is the same. Mark the batter into 24 squares, and a good rule of thumb is to add about 3 cherries per square. I sometimes make this with blueberry pie filling instead of cherry. I love this recipe because if you have drop-in company, you can whip it up in no time, and I usually have the ingredients on hand already. In fact, I keep a can of cherry pie filling on the shelf just in case I need to make this. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Good cake. A little bit misleading on the name as it's not 'glazed' with cherries. Cherry pie filling is deposited by the spoonful in a grid pattern. I made it in two 8x8 pans. Rose nicely nice crumb and is good to serve at any time. I'm taking it to a meeting today for a Valentine treat. I might drizzle it with a light icing next time. Read More
