Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17)

Cherry Nut Bars


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cups granulated sugar
1 cups Land O Lakes butter, melted
cup chopped pecans
1 t. baking soda
1 (21-oz.) can cherry pie filling
1 cup miniature marshmallows

Heat oven to 350F. Combine flour, oats, sugar, butter, pecans and soda in large mixer bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (2 to 3 minutes). Reserve 1 cups crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into ungreased 13 x 9 baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Gently spoon pie filling evenly over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with marshmallows. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking for 25 to 35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars. Makes 36 bars. TIP: To make dessert squares; cut into 15 bars. Top individual servings with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
