Cherry Squares

We had an Easter/Visakhi1 potluck at work and I decided it was high time I baked something2. I went for something that’s relatively easy to make: my granny’s cherry squares. These are quite delicious, but probably the sweetest thing you’ll ever eat. They make my teeth hurt just thinking about them!

Cherry Squares. The basic recipe is 1 million parts sugar to 1 part not sugar.

My mom, my sister, and I share an account on the Allrecipes.com website so that we can easily share our recipes. I knew that the cherry squares recipe was on there, because my mom often makes them for family events, as my family loves their sweets. When I opened up the recipe I noticed the note my mom had included when she put this recipe up: “These are Jack’s favourite.” And they were.

One of my co-workers decided that these goodies needed a better name than just “cherry squares”, so she started calling them “cherry bomb”. I like that! I think I’m going to call them that from now on!

  1. Truth be told, we just wanted an excuse to have a potluck. []
  2. I used to bake stuff to take to work all the time, but I’ve been so busy, blah blah blah. []
