08May2017Sheet Pan Cherry Pie Bars These Sheet Pan Cherry Pie Bars are perfect for a crowd! A sweet crust topped with cherry pie filling and a vanilla glaze, this dessert recipe is delicious! Pie is by far my favorite dessert of all time! I’ve always been partial to classic apple pie, but I’d take a slice of homemade cherry pie any day of the week, too. I’m thinking it’s the bright color of the cherries that make me in the mood for cherry pie in particular during the spring and summer months. The red is just so cheerful and perfect with a cup of coffee! Sometimes, though, I really don’t FEEL like putting together all those crust ingredients. Ok, well maybe there aren’t really that many ingredients in pie crust. But I could assure you that most of the time I really don’t feel like making the crust, rolling it out to the right thickness, fitting it perfectly in the pie plate, trimming it, and making the edge nice. Now that part is a lot of work, you have to admit! Most times I wind up using store bought crust to just save the hassle, and it takes great, too. I was looking for a way to make cherry pie flavor in a bar form though to save even more time and energy. I can happily report, this one is it! I will say, the crust is more like a cross between a pie crust and a sugar cookie dough, but still absolutely delicious. Hopefully you will think the same, too! yield: 16 servingsAuthor: Kelly Millerprint recipe Sheet Pan Cherry Pie Bars Sugar cookie crust topped with cherry pie filling baked in a sheet pan and topped with a powdered sugar glaze. prep time: 10 MINScook time: 35 MINStotal time: 45 mins INGREDIENTS:1 cup butter, room temperature2 cups sugar4 eggs1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 teaspoon almond extract3 cups flour3/4 teaspoon salt20 oz can cherry pie filling Glaze Ingredients1 cup powdered sugar2-3 tablespoons milk INSTRUCTIONS:In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
