Cherry Bars

I came across an interesting recipe on Pinterest and just had to try it:  Caramel Bars (  It was a great recipe, but a little too sweet for me.  I decided to adapt the recipe and try cherries, instead of caramel.  The result is amazing!

Here are the ingredients:

4 cups flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
4 sticks of butter
1 large can of cherry pie filling

In your mixer, mix together butter, brown sugar and white granulated sugar.  Slowly add powdered sugar.  Add vanilla and flour.

Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with PAM or cooking spray.  Press 1/2 of the dough at the bottom of the pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until slightly golden brown.  While that is baking refrigerate the remaining dough.  You want the dough to be cold so that you can crumble it on top.

Remove from the oven.  Open the cherry pie filling and spread over the bottom crust.  Take the remaining dough and crumble over the top.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the top crust has some golden on it. 

Enjoy!  If you don't enjoy cherries, you can add any filling that you want!
