Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry pie filling (I use a 21-oz can)

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven
    to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in
    eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. In a separate bowl combine all dry
    ingredients. Stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of
    the batter. Pour remaining batter in a greased jelly roll pan. Cover with pie
    filling. Drop reserved batter by big spoonfuls over cherry layer. Bake for 40
    minutes and cool for 15 minutes before drizzling glaze over bars.
