  1. This is the recipe I remember from my childhood. I lost it and was so excited to stumble upon it here. Made them this morning and can’t wait to eat them and share them with my family tonight for dinner!!

    1. Angela…so glad you found the recipe you were searching for. Isn’t it nice to be able to make something you enjoyed years go? Please let me know if your family enjoyed the squares…and thanks for leaving a comment for me–much appreciated.

  2. I recently was requested by my family to make these squares. I have not made them for a few years. I discovered that I lost the recipe. I was frantic until I saw this one. This is the one that I always made. I just added a half a cherry to the top, and deleted the Whipped Cream.
