Ukrainian Chereshnyanyk Cherry bars:
Any fresh fruit may be used with this pastry base. For quick and sure results use a canned cherry pie filling.
2 cups sifted flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 cup light cream
Sift the flour with the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Combine the lemon juice, rind, and cream; add to the flour mixture. Mix lightly. This dough should be soft.
Spoon it into a buttered 9x14 inch cake pan and pat gently, elevating the sides to hold the filling.
Fill with sugared cherries or a can of cherry pie filling and bake in a moderate oven (375 degrees F.) for 35 minutes, or until done.
Cool and cut into squares. When using very juicy fruit, add a little flour to it to prevent the juice from running out.
