After making dough, spoon 1 can of cherry pie filling over 2/3’s dough that’s been pressed into a generously greased jelly roll  pan.  Take the remaining 1/3 dough and drop dollops randomly over the top of the cherries.

With the bright red color of the cherries, you could put a little decorative flag in the center of the squares to give them a little patriotic flair that’s perfect for this time of year.

Cherry dessert squares are also good served warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.  My hubby has to have them with a tall, cold glass of milk!

Any fun family recipes you’ve made recently that you had to dig deep in the crevices of your recipe box to find?
