As a former Nanaimo resident, I am very picky about keeping it authentic. But when I saw this Cherry Nanaimo bar, I had to try it as I love cherries. It is delicious, and it still retains that traditional Nanaimo Bar taste. I used almonds in the base layer, I also find that goes nicely with the cherry flavor! This is a very sweet dessert, the maraschino cherry juice makes it a little sweeter than a traditional Nanaimo bar. So if you are not a big sweet tooth person, use just milk or cream in replacement of juice and puree the cherries so you still get a pink filling. This is a very festive and attractive dessert, perfect for a Christmas cookie platter!
