Is there anything prettier than a cherry or strawberry dessert? I love the colors, I love the flavors and they are perfect for the holidays. You can use any flavor pie filling to switch it up a bit. Blueberry is another favorite of mine. As always, I love adding a little almond extract along with anything cherry. It really enhances the cherry flavor without overwhelming it.
You will need a larger baking sheet for this. It is often called a jelly roll pan. Trust me, it’ll get a ton of use once you make these bars one time. You’ll be hooked! I just know you are going to fall in love with these bars. The cherry filling plays peekaboo around the dollops of dough. They slice up and serve beautifully.
Cherry pie in bar form! Cherry pie bars made with pie filling, homemade crust and drizzled with vanilla-almond glaze. A portable crowd pleaser perfect for summer get togethers.At the farm stand I worked at this past summer, we had jars of Amish pie filling for sale from a local farm in Illinois. I grabbed a jar of cherry filling and it sat on my kitchen counter for weeks. I didn’t know what to do with it. I didn’t want to make cherry pie because I have my own way of making that from scratch and this filling wouldn’t be right.
But cherry pie bars… that would work! After searching and scouring the internet on how to make them, I overwhelmingly came across the same recipe from Taste of Home. These are delicious and I’ll be making them over and over again.
