This delicious cherry pie crumb bar recipe is super easy to create and always a crowd pleaser!
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 T almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 4½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1½ t baking powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To make cleanup easy, I love to use parchment paper. I suggest you line your 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper. Then set it aside.
  3. Grab a medium size mixing bowl. Mix together these dry ingredients: sugar, baking powder and flour.
  4. Now you want to cut in butter that has already softened (not melted- just room temperature soft). You can use a fork but I prefer to use a pastry blender.
  5. In small bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla and almond extract.
  6. Slowly stir the egg and extract mixture into the dry ingredient mixture. Lightly combine it together.
  7. Pour half of the crumble mixture into the bottom of your pan that is covered in parchment paper.
  8. Press it down to make the bottom layer.
  9. Then, the crumb mixture that is left int he bowl, add the oats to that. Mix gently together. We are going to use that in just a second.
  10. Pour the cherry pie filling over the bottom layer of crumble.
  11. Top the cherry filling with that reserved layer of crumble that you added the oats to.
  12. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until lightly browned.
  13. Allow the bars to cool 100% before you start cutting into them.
  14. Once cool, cut into bars and share!
