Cherry Bars

Easy. Beautiful. Delicious. Can be made the day before (minus the glaze.) Always a crowd pleaser!

Cherry Bars

1 3/4 cups sugar
2 cubes margarine (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 large can cherry pie filling (I prefer Wilderness)

Heat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream sugar, margarine and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Gradually add flour and baking powder and blend well.

Spread 2/3 of batter on a greased sheet cake pan (18X13). Spread pie filling over batter. Drop remaining batter by teaspoonful over pie filling. Bake for 35 minutes (until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.)

Cool. Drizzle with glaze.

1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp almond extract

Stir together all ingredients and drizzle over bars, using a fork.
