I need to quit opening your postings, Ol Blue, because when I do I gain 5 pounds just reading it and can't keep my mouth from salivating. These look scrumptious (you take gorgeous photos) as I can't resist cherry anything. Now I know what I'm going to be making for guests next weekend as I can find both cherry preserves and coconut here and it will be such a change from my regular boring desserts.

OMG Debbie, these bars look so yummy! Thank you for posting the recipe!
Next time I go to town, I am picking up a couple jars of those cherry preserves, as I want to make these these bars, and have extra preserves on hand so I can make your delicious tasting Cherry Pork Chops once again.
