  • I have been making this recipe for years! We call them Fruit Bars and often alternate the squares with different pie fillings. (Ex. Cherry and Blueberry) They are very pretty and you get a variety in one pan! These bars were such a hit with the kids at school and the teachers that our school cafeteria asked for the recipe and has served them ever since! We also like peach and strawberry!
