Cherry Chews

I felt like cooking something sweet and I found this recipe online. For the first time ever, I baked something that didn't come with a photograph! So I really wasn't sure what it would turn out like! I had an idea in my head that I could drizzle chocolate over the top, and I suppose you could. But I decided to leave these as they were.

I added extra cherries because I really don't think you can ever have too much of a good thing! They are so gooey and chewy and crunchy! All my favourite textures. Really sweet and flavoursome!
1 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1 cup icing sugar mixture
125g butter, melted
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cupdesiccated coconut
150g glace cherries, chopped

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a 16cm x 26cm slab pan and line with non-stick baking paper.
Sift the flours and icing sugar into a bowl. Add the butter and mix until combined. Press into the base of the pan.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Spread over the base. Bake for 35 minutes. Leave to cool then cut into squares to serve.

Those look fabulous! Like really thin "coffee cake," almost, but with fruit! Yum!
