Cherry Cake Squares

I never comment on postings, but I made these as part of a cookie assortment gift, and any concerns I had while they were baking, completely wiped away. They were truly amazing. I’m glad I kept and cut up the edges – EVERYBODY wanted some!
Part way through the baking time, I did have to turn the temperature down to 300’F, because they were browning so quickly; I was scared they would burn around the edges. Also, the middle did fall a bit as they cooled, but nothing big, and easily masked by icing.
Thank you for sharing this recipe, it has earned a spot in my permanent go-to repertoire, and I will be checking out more recipes on your site.
