  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup flour, oats, 1 cup brown sugar, baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Rub in the 1/2 cup of butter until crumbly. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove and cool. Make the filling while the crust is baking. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, almond extract, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt until smooth. Stir in the coconut, cherries and pecans. Spread over the pre-baked crust.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Let cool before icing.
  5. To make the icing, mix together the remaining 6 tablespoons butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add the reserved cherry juice until the desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over cooled bars before cutting into squares.

Most helpful critical review

They were easy enouph to prepare, but I found with the addition of all that icing they were too sweet. Will either cut the icing by half or may try a cream cheese icing next time.

I just searched this recipe for fun on allrecipes as it is a family tradition for my husband's family. They've been a Christmas tradition for as long as he can remember (as a boy and he's over ...

Very good, all the flavors come through. I chopped the cherries into small pieces with a food processor before putting them in, which helped to distribute them better.

I made these for Christmas, and they were an instant hit. Several people asked for the recipe as a must have at their own celebrations.

I used unsweetened coconut and walnuts instead of pecans. This was WAY too sweet for me, but I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 3 because the husband and kids loved it.

very yummy but for the cherries put in food processer it makes it much easyer

These bars are so good, there are no words to describe them, all I can say is that I could eat the whole pan in one sitting!

Absolutely fabulous..I used almonds instead of pecans and wow. They didn't last long at all.
