Cherry pie bars are full of cherry flavor on a shortbread crust with pecans and a mildly sweet almond glaze.
Cherry is a favorite flavor and it pairs so nicely with other flavors. These cherry pie bars have pecans in the bars and almond extract in the glaze.
There’s a shortbread crust underneath all the cherry goodness. These bake in two stages. You bake the crust first then add the filling and topping and bake again. It’s such an easy recipe, especially since you use store-bought cherry pie filling.
If you’re concerned about this dessert having nuts, feel free to omit the pecans and substitute vanilla extract for the almond. You won’t miss them.
These bars will last about 2 days but are best enjoyed the day you make them.
