3 c Fresh cherries; pitted

Combine the crunch crust mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Pat 3/4
of the mixture into a 9 x 9 inch baking pan, reserving the remaining crumbs
for the top, and set aside.

stirring constantly, until thickened. Let cool slightly and stir in the

sprinkle them over the filling and top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 375
degrees F. for about 45 minutes.

When cool, cut into squares.
