I have my grandmother's recipe box. Inside it, you will find some family favorites, some duplicate recipe cards written out at different times, some recipes with no names and many recipes without directions. I am going to randomly choose a recipe every week or so from her recipe box and you will see it here.

Cherry Nut Squares
Here is the 2nd recipe from my grandmother's recipe box. Some of these must be lost recipes because no one in the family remembered Aunt Grace's Orange Cake. I also don't recognize the handwriting on this recipe so I wonder who wrote it, but it was in the recipe box.
Maraschino cherries in this recipe seems like an interesting choice
but the cherries give the batter a nice pink color.
This recipe also calls for the icing to be put on the hot cake - seems to be a trend. This cake/cookie bar definitely has a taste that seems nostalgic.
Happy Mother's Day Mom, Grandma, Grandma Dawn, Mom Marinich.
