Equipment

  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Hand mixer
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Medium Mixing Bowl
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan
  • spatula

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 21 ounces cherry pie filling 1 can

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 Tablespoons milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract and beat well.
  • Add flour and salt to the creamed mixture and mix until combined.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and spread about 3/4 of the batter in the bottom and be sure to spread to the very edge of the pan.
  • If the dough is sticky, spray your finger tips with non stick cooking spray. Spread the 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.

Glaze

  • Combine powdered sugar, vanilla, almond extract and milk until smooth and then drizzle over the bars.
