Cherry Pie Bars

  • Cherry cloud bars are light, fluffy cloud-like cakes bursting with delicious cherry pie filling and lightly glazed. These bars are simple to throw together. We dished it into bowls and made it more like a cobbler than bars.

  • Ingredients
    1 cup of butter, softened (but not completely melted)
    2 cups of sugar
    4 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp almond extract
    3 cups all purpose flour
    2 cans of cherry pie filling (can use just 1 if you need to)
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  
  • Method:
  • In a mixing bowl, cream your butter, sugar- add eggs and almond extract, beating well to mix. Add flour & Salt, Mixing Well.

    Spread half of the batter in a greased 9x13 pan, Spoon the Pie Filling over the batter Randomly drop tablespoons remaining batter over the pie filling (*do not mix the pie filling INTO the cake)

    Bake for 35 min or until your toothpick comes out clean

    If you wish to add a glaze mix 1 c. Powdered sugar, 1 tsp almond extract, 2 tsp milk and drizzle over the baked bars after they have completely cooled.
