  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in almond extract. Fold in flour until just blended. Spread batter into prepared pan. With the tip of a knife, mark squares in the batter. Spoon equal portions of pie filling in the center of each square.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool, then dust with confectioners' sugar.

I got this off of a recipe card in the mail from Great American Recipes. There's an ingredient missing that might make a difference - 2 tsp. of baking powder that needs to be added to the flour mixture. This can be baked in a 9x13 pan at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes.

My mom has made this simple, wonderful recipe for years! She calls it "Cherry Squares." Her recipe calls for 1 Tbl. lemon juice, but other than that, this recipe is the same. Mark the batter into 24 squares, and a good rule of thumb is to add about 3 cherries per square. I sometimes make this with blueberry pie filling instead of cherry. I love this recipe because if you have drop-in company, you can whip it up in no time, and I usually have the ingredients on hand already. In fact, I keep a can of cherry pie filling on the shelf just in case I need to make this. Thanks for the recipe!

I make this all the time. Very easy. I also like it with blueberries instead of cherries.

Very good! I adapted the recipe by putting raisins, and pink food colouring, and cherry pieces in! Thanks

Easy! Served cold from the fridge on a hot day for a bbq holiday get together. Made 1/2 with cherry pie filling, the other 1/2 with blueberry for red, white, and blue dessert.
