Cherry Pie Squares

Cherry Pie Squares

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.
