  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling, (I used 2 cans)


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

Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray a 15x10x1" or 9x13" pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Whisk flour and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, vanilla and almond extracts and beat well.

Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and mix until well combined.

Spread 3 cups of batter in whichever dish you are using.  Spread with the pie filling.  Drop remaining batter on top of the pie filling.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack.  Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over the bars.
