Cherry Pie Bars Recipe


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract


  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and lightly grease a baking pan.
  2. Cream the Sugar and Butter: In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until it’s creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the Eggs and Extracts: To the creamed mixture, beat in 2 eggs, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  5. Blend Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, a little at a time, until fully combined.
  6. Prepare the Cherry Topping: Open a can of cherry pie filling and have it ready for the next step.
  7. Layer the Batter and Cherries: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Gently place the cherry pie filling on top without blending it into the batter.
  8. Bake the Cherry Bars: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the edges are slightly crispy.
  9. Let It Cool: Remove the pan from the oven and let the cherry bars cool to room temperature.
  10. Optional Drizzle: If you desire, you can drizzle some glaze over the top for extra sweetness.
  11. Serve and Enjoy: Cut the cherry bars into portions, and serve them up for a delightful treat.
  12. Store Leftovers: If there are any leftovers, store them in an airtight container to enjoy later.


  • Don’t blend the cherries into the batter; just place them on top to keep the layers distinct.
  • Adjust the baking time if needed based on your oven.
  • Feel free to add a glaze or other toppings to suit your taste.
