Cherry Bars

Cherry BarsNeed the perfect treat for your next winter get-together? This cherry bar is it! It is the perfect combination of cake and fruit that mixes up in no time. 

First preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Then soften your butter in a bowl and mix in the sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking powder and salt.  Spread it into a 11×15 greased jelly roll pan or a shallow baking pan. Use a spoon to put 1 can (21oz) of cherry pie filling on top of the batter.  Bake for 40 min.  After baking, drizzle your cherry bars with powdered sugar frosting while the bars are still hot.

Now for the frosting… you combine the butter, milk and vanilla in a pan on the stove and heat it until the butter is melted.  You want to heat up the liquid so you will have a smoother frosting.  In a bowl place 2 cups of powdered sugar and add the warm liquid to the powdered sugar one teaspoon at a time. This recipe makes quite a bit of frosting so you may have some left over. Now it is time to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by.
