Cherry Pie Bars Recipe

Cherry Pie Bars with homemade Pie Filling

Easier than pie but just as yummy!
The flavors of these cherry pie bars are summer bliss. You get a soft, flake crust flavored with Almond and stuffed with Cherry Pie Filling , then it’s topped with a rich and creamy vanilla almond flavored glaze.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter, softened (I used coconut oil)
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
4 cups cherry pie filling (Homemade Cherry Pie Filling)


2 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 - 3 Tbsp milk (almond milk works also)

Oven Temp: 350°
Recipe Cooking Time:
Pan Type: 13 x 9 baking pan

Cherry Pie Bars Directions

Preheat your oven. Spray pan with nonstick pan spray.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time, then blend in vanilla and almond extracts. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Reserve and set aside 1 1/2 cups batter then spread remaining cookie dough evenly into prepared baking dish. Top with cherry pie filling spreading into an even layer. Drop small spoonfuls of the reserved cookie dough evenly over top. Bake in preheated oven about 30 - 37 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

For the glaze:

In a small mixing bowl whisk together all glaze ingredients adding enough milk to reach desired consistency. Pour into a resealable bag, seal bag and cut a small tip from one corner then drizzle over top of cooled bars. Allow glaze to set (to set it quicker chill in freezer) then cut into squares.

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
