cherry squares/bars – baking tuesday – townie

i was trying to distract munchkin #2 from being hungry and demanding dinner while his sister was doing homework way before dinner time….  so we decided to bake 🙂  this recipe came together super easy — next time i would use 2 cans of cherry pie filling – otherwise it was delicious!

Cherry Squares

adapted from pretty kittens kitchen

Ingredients:
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
3 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lg. can sugar free cherry pie filling

Directions:
Cream butter and sugar together until very light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then beat in the extract. Gradually mix in the flour until well incorporated.
Spread 3/4 of the batter in the bottom of a 9″x13″ pan lined with parchment paper. Scoop cherry pie filling over batter in pan.
Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls over the cherries. (I often use a small cookie scoop and spread the globs out a bit with my fingers.)
Bake at 375 for 45 min. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
