  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the dough and spread the rest into the bottom of the prepared pan. Cover this layer evenly with cherry pie filling. Drop the rest of the dough by spoonfuls on top of the cherry layer and spread to cover the best you can.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until top is golden. Frost with a confectioners' glaze when cool for sweeter bars. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.

I made this Christmas Eve as a last-minute extra for the dessert table. I used three egg yolks I had left over from another recipe as a replacement for one egg, and had to add a little milk to c...

This was very easy to make! Baked for 50 min and it was perfect! Next time I will try it with whole wheat flour and Splenda.

I don't know about these Cherry Bars. I cooked them for 45 min. and they were still mushy in the middle. The parts that weren't mushy tasted really good though. Next time I'll try cooking them a...

Great recipe, and I agree with previous review of using 3 c. flour, and the almond extract - 1/2 to 1 tsp. I also used 2 cans of cherry pie filling (premium if you can find it, since it has mor...
