You have to check out these Cherry Pie Bars. I saw the recipe over on our friend’s blog (The Recipe Critic) and I was seriously drooling on my keyboard when I saw them. The crust almost tastes like a sugar cookie and they are dangerously delicious!
In a large bowl, ream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract and beat well. Add flour and salt to the creamed mixture and mix until combined.
Grease a 9x13" baking pan and spread about 3/4 of the batter in the bottom (mine was a little sticky, so I sprayed my hands with nonstick cooking spray and used my hands to spread the dough to the edges of the pan). Spread with pie filling over the batter. Drop remaining batter on top of pie filling in teaspoonful amounts (I did about 35 small spoonfuls of batter over the cherry filling to make the top crust).
Bake for about 35 minutes or until toothpick comes clean. Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over the bars.
