Ingredients

Crumb Mixture

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/4 cups Land O Lakes® Butter softened

Filling

1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling

1 teaspoon almond extract

Glaze

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 tablespoon shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all crumb mixture ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture; press remaining crumb mixture oto bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine all filling ingredients in same bowl. Spread filling over hot, partially baked crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking 27-32 minutes or until lightly browned.

  4. STEP 4

    Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Drizzle over bars. Cool completely; cut into bars.

Tip #1

Bars can be cut into shapes other than rectangles. Try cutting into diamonds or triangles for gift giving.

How long can these bars be stored? Should they be frozen?

Hi Cathy, these bars can be stored for about a week at room temperature, in an air-tight container. You may also freeze them for up to a month in an air-tight container. Happy baking!

Super easy and tasty! I followed the recipe but the cherry pie filling was not enough to cover the baked crust. I'll use to cans next time ;-)
