Cherry Bars, from Bernell and Eileen

Cherry Bars, from Bernell and Eileen
Bernell and Eileen made a ton of bars for Gael's high school graduation party from Derham Hall on 8/25/1985. These were one of them. Mom still talks about how many bars they made. (See also: Ultimate Chocolate Bars.)

1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup nuts, chopped
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, cut up

Cream first three ingredients and spread in 9 x 13. Bake 10 minutes or until light brown.

Mix remaining ingredients and spread on baked crust. Return to oven 30 minutes longer (350?)
