Cherry Slice

Now that Cherries are back in season it's time to make Cherry Slice.  Cherry slice is another fabulously simple slice, that is really quite delicious and while the slice does not use fresh cherries, fresh cherries are great served with this slice.

Another good, quick recipe to keep in the recipe file.
