Happy May Day to you all!

It's exciting that we are able to visit our local parks. I hope you are all able to get out get some much needed fresh air.  Just a reminder that we are still obligated to have our markets maintain low numbers in the aisles, keep up our best social distancing practices, wear masks and wash our hands whenever we have come into contact with contaminants or touching points. If you find yourself in a line at the market please be aware of the aisle and do your best to move the line away from the aisle whenever possible. Together we can beat COVID-19 and keep our farmers' market open for our community. 

Be safe and healthy!


Please do not touch any of the produce or food items,  the vendors will will get your items for you, Thank you!  
 This is actually a common practice in Europe long before the virus, I think we will be able to get the hang of it.

Chocolate Chip Cherry Bars


prep time 10 MINUTES
cook time 30 MINUTES
cooling time 20 MINUTES
total time 1 HOUR

These cherry bars use my favorite blondie base and turn out perfectly every single time!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
  •  1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  •  1 large egg
  •  2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  •  1 cup all-purpose flour
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  •  3/4 to 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  •  1 cup cherries (fresh or frozen)*

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8-by-8-inch pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, about 60 seconds.
  3. To the melted butter, add the brown sugar and stir to combine.
  4. Add the egg, vanilla, and stir to combine. Add the flour, salt, and stir until just combined, taking care not to over mix or the blondies will be tough.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips, fruit (I don’t halve the cherries: I like them chunky and big), and pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing it lightly with a spatula or offset knife if necessary.

  6. Bake for 27 to 32 minutes, or until edges begin to slightly pull away from sides of pan and center is set.**
  7. Allow bars to cool for at least 1 hour before slicing and serving. Blondies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months.
