I tried this out for the first time about a year ago and fell in love. The problem with most pies is the crust to filling recipe....this fixing all of that and then some. I also think it's about 18,568x's easier than the typical pie crush. So....with Cherry Pie in demand as summer goes into full swing...here's a little pot luck dish option. It's also totally find to make this at 2 am and eat it all by yourself too.
Ingredients for Bar:1 cup butter (softened), 2 c sugar, 4 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 3 c flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 (21 ounce) cherry pie filling Ingredients for the Glaze:1 c powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp almond extract, 2 Tbs milk Instructions: 1. Cream butter and sugar then add the eggs and beat. Add vanilla and almond extract. 2. Mix in flour and salt. 3. Grease a 9x13 pan and spread 3 c batter. Cover with pie filling. Drop remaining batter on top of pie filling. 4. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes clean. Cool. Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over the bars.
