Canned cherry pie filling is spread between buttery oatmeal layers in these easy, delicious cherry bars.
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients except pie filling and marshmallows in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Reserve 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture for topping.
Press remaining crumb mixture into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned on edges.
Gently spoon pie filling evenly over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with marshmallows. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking 25-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars.

I would definitely add some almond flavoring to the pie filling, as it lacked "zip" in the taste department.
I have made these many times and always include them on my Christmas trays that I deliver to the bank, post office, doctor's office, etc. -- they always ask for the recipe!
I love this recipe! I've used it 4 times within the past 2 months. I do add a little cinnamon and almond extract to the cherries. Also, about a teaspoon of salt to the crust mixture. This makes the flavors stand out.
I made these last Christmas and I will make them again this year...very delicious and festive looking.

Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
