Cherry Pie Bars

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.
Cherry Pie Bar
Ingredients for Bar:1 cup butter (softened), 2 c sugar, 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.
