    Really good and easy recipe once you have the cherries pitted. I added a bit of concentrated cherry juice to the filling and boiled it a little longer--and am glad of it. The filling i s just the right consistency. Next time a will sprinkle a little vanilla salt on the top layer.

    I found these to be very good. I used frozen cherries and made half the recipe in my 14 x 4 inch tart pan. The baking time for this size was 30 to 35 minutes, and the cooling time was less too. I wasn't as enthusiastic about these as the other reviewers, however. Perhaps a bit of spice in the base would help, for example ginger, cardamom, or nutmeg?

    Agree that these are a tasty combination. Used full 18 ozs of already pitted, frozen organic cherries, so the filling was a little tart, which I liked, but others might want to increase the amount of sugar slightly. Seemed even better on 2nd day.

    Cherries and almonds are a classic combination for a reason- they taste amazing together. These bars come together quite quickly once you have the cherries pitted and it is nice to have a bar cookie recipe using fresh fruit. And given how short cherry season is, I like that you can pit and freeze fresh cherries to make this recipe later in the summer.

    Delicious - I would never have thought of making bars with fresh cherries and these are fabulous. Easy to put together. The cherry filling is worth trying, so good on its own too - great with vanilla ice cream and I bet it would taste amazing with pancakes and waffles, too.
