Cherry Pie Bars

My favorite pie is cherry pie.  I just love me some cherry pie.  I have never liked pumpkin pie, so cherry pie is my top choice for Thanksgiving.   These cherry pie bars are the bomb!  It was just like biting into a cherry pie and served warm with a side of vanilla ice cream…. wow.  I think I want some more now!

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Things that I changed:  Nothing
Things that I would do differently next time: It suggests baking them in a 15x10x1 pan or a 9×13.  Next time I am going to bake them in a 15×10 pan so they aren’t so thick and don’t take so long to bake.
Will I make this again?  Yes
