Banana Cherry Slice
A very old recipe my mother cut out of the long defunct Winnipeg Tribune
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup cold butter (add a pinch of salt if you use unsalted butter)
3 tbsp brown sugar
35 large marshmallows
17 maraschino cherries, chopped
2 ripe bananas, mashed
Cut butter into flour and brown sugar to make a crumb mixture.
Press into bottom of 9" x 13" greased pan.
Bake crust at 300F for 20 minutes. Let cool.
Melt marshmallows in top of double boiler (or in microwave).
Stir in fruit. Spoon over cooled base and chill.
1/2 cup soft butter (pinch of salt if using unsalted butter)
3/4 cup icing sugar
1-2 tbsp milk (or Amaretto)
2 tsp almond or vanilla extract (don't bother if using Amaretto)
Mix it all up and spread over cooled slice.
