  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add brown sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Blend in honey; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add to cream cheese mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cherries, the pecans and raisins.
  • Spread into greased and floured 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Mix powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle over warm bars. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cherries. Cool completely. Cut into 36 bars.


Prepare as directed, substituting candied fruit for the maraschino cherries and adding 1 tsp. salt to the flour mixture.

Special Extra

For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method.  Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed.  Remove foil.  When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.
