Cherry Pie Bars
Imagine if sugar cookie bars and a cherry pie got married.
I like food marriages. Last week, I saw this macaroni & cheese pizza and, well, I haven't been able to stop thinking of it since.
Here's what I love about these bars: EVERYTHING.
The sugar cookie base is thick and almond-y. The cherries are tart and sweet. The whole thing comes together in a snap. Cherry pie with no fork required.
After the bars have cooled, you'll dust them with powdered sugar. My powdered sugar shaker (filled with Imperial Confectioner's Powered Sugar, of course) is one of my favorite kitchen tools.
Mr. E went a little ga-ga over these. (Maybe men don't go ga-ga. Whatever you want to call it, he LOVED them.)
If you bake one thing this week...make these bars.
I'm sharing my cherry pie bars recipe over on Imperial Sugar today.
