Cherry Snack Bars


2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 cups granulated sugar

4 large eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

One 21 Oz. can cherry pie filling

Confectioners’ sugar, for glazing

Preheat oven to 350, then line a 9" x 13" baking pan with parchment paper.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, for 5 minutes.

Add eggs one at a time, beating until just combined.

Add flour, baking powder, salt and mix to combine.

Spread a little over half of the cake batter into the pan.

Evenly spread cherries over top, then spoon the rest of the cake batter over the cherries.

(It’s ok if the cherries show through.)

Bake until the top has turned slightly golden, 30 to 35 minutes.

Cool before slicing into squares.

Combine ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar with enough water to make a drizzly consistency, then drizzle over the bars before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
