I found this recipe in an old recipe box that one of my mom’s friends gave me. I love making recipes from that box because they are usually surprisingly delicious!
I chose this recipe because I tend to lean towards a chocolatey dessert like cookies or brownies. I have never made squares like this. But I will again! I made these in less time than it took my husband to cook dinner. They are very easy and equally yummy!
1 3/4 cups coconut flakes
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
Mix the first four ingredients together until well combined. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 9 baking dish. Top with the cherry pie filling. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 of the mixture on top of the cherry pie filling. Bake at 375F for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
This is the perfect dessert to whip up in a flash! Hope you enjoy.
