Recipe Share

Cherry Squares

2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 can cherry pie filling (enough for one pie)

Cream together the oil and sugar, then add eggs and mix well.  Add in the flour, salt, and almond extract.  Grease a 9"x13" pan and spread slightly more than half the batter on the bottom.  Pour pie filling over batter.  Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls over top.  Pie filling will show through in places.  Bake at 350 F for one hour.  Cut into squares and serve topped with whipped cream.  Other pie fillings or extracts can be substituted to suit your tastes.  (I recommend lemon filling with vanilla extract)

Cherry Squares are a favorite from my childhood, I hope you enjoy them.  I'd share a picture of them, but they get eaten up too fast  ;)
