Cherry Pie Bars

Products Used


    • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until combined and fluffy. Add egg yolks and beat until combined, scraping sides and bottom of bowl as necessary. Mix in extracts.
    3. On low speed, mix in flour until just combined. Reserve 1/2 cup of dough in another bowl. Press larger portion of dough evenly into an ungreased 9x13” pan. Stir almonds into reserved dough.
    4. Add cherry pie filling evenly over dough. Pinch off sections of almond dough and scatter over top.
    5. Bake for 38-45 minutes or until the edges are golden and top is lightly browned. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into squares or bars and dust with confectioner’s sugar.


    [Note: To make sticky dough easier to press into pan, wet your hands and dry until still damp. Press dough in place with damp fingers.]

    This was an easy recipe with great results. You can make these ahead and freeze them.

    Amazing recipe! My son-in-law will only eat cherry pie (not a big sweets lover like the rest of us) and he ate the whole pan of these! I had to make another one for the rest of us and sent another home with him. This is definitely a "go to" recipe for me!!

    Oops.. there is no Spanish translation to this recipe
