{Easy} Cherry Pie Sugar Cookie Bars

Sweet cherry pie filling between sugar cookie layers. Such an easy and pretty dessert!

These bars were something I thought of just looking at a pouch of sugar cookie mix and a can of cherry pie filling. Everyone loves cherry pie and sugar cookies, why not try them together? A total win, I'm happy to report! I brought these over my parent's house for a family dinner and they were gone in no time. Keep the sugar cookie mix and cherry pie filling on hand for a quick dessert when guests show up unexpectedly or if you have to bring something for a dinner. So easy and so delicious!

{Easy} Cherry Pie Sugar Cookie Bars

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
21 oz can cherry pie filling

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg. Stir in contents of sugar cookie mix pouch and melted butter. Keep mixing until thick dough forms. Remove 3/4 cup of dough to a smaller bowl and set aside. Press remaining dough into a greased 9x9 square baking pan. In a separate bowl, stir together cherry pie filling and almond extract. Spread over sugar cookie dough in baking dish. Break up remaining dough into small chunks and sprinkle over top of cherry pie filling. Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Cool before slicing and serving.

This would be perfect with a bowl of vanilla ice cream right now!

    Thank you for linking up these Cherrie Pie Bars at our SImply Create Link Party! I just wanted to let you know that I am featuring them as part of 17 Delicious Dessert Bars today on the blog.



  20. Would this work with strawberry pie filling?

  21. I'm sure it would work just fine with any pie filling! That sounds really yummy. :)

  22. add in half cup plain nonfat greek yogurt to the cookie mix and you get cobbler...adjust time and temp slightly...made this in strawberry...blueberry and cherry....with homemade whipped topping...total hit at work!

  23. made the cherry bars last week and tonight i am trying the peach !

  24. That sounds awesome, Maureen!

  25. Ooooo that sounds SO good Alissa!
