Cherry Bar Cookie


  Here is the recipe from the picture on Instagram that I took, posted & then was commented on by MARTHA STEWART!  {Yep, that's right}  

This is a very easy recipe to make & always puts a smile on everyone face that eats it.  It is the perfect dessert to serve anytime during the summer.  Nothing better than cherries to let you know that Summer is in full swing.  

-Do you spy the heart shaped dough in the cookie?- 
Growing up this was a recipe my Mom would always make when feeding a big crowd, going to a pot luck or family party. I recently baked it for a get together with friends in our backyard. It was a hit! Everyone liked it, including Martha. 
I believe my Mom got the recipe from a friend of hers & we've been baking it up ever since.  If cherries aren't your thing you can substitute them for apples or blueberry filling as well.  It takes just as good. 

Cherry Bar Cookie
1 3/4 Cup Sugar 
1 Cup Butter 
4 Eggs 
1 t. Vanilla 
3 Cups Flour 
1 1/2 t. baking powder 
1/2 t. Salt 
1 can cherry pie filling 

  Mix sugar & butter together well.  Add in the eggs & vanilla. Once all combined add in the dry ingredients until blended well. Spread half of the dough onto a big cookie sheet.  Spread pie filling over the dough.  With the remaining dough drop spoonfuls over the pie filling.  Bake for 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven. When cool drizzle with glaze over the top. Perfect to cut up into squares & eat or serve with ice cream. 

Yum, Yum, YUM!  This is a super sweet summertime treat.  It's like a cookie, pie & bar all rolled up into one.  Love a good recipe that is scrumptious but takes no time at all to make.  

I wanted to include this picture because I get asked all the time about my kitchen countertops.  Everyone always assumes it concrete or some kind of marble but I'll let you in on a little secret.... they are Corian.  Yep, that's it.  When we built out home I wanted concrete countertops but they were a little pricey so my countertop guy recommended this look for about 1/2 the price.  I have loved them!  Everything I photograph looks great against the grey tones. I think what deceives everyone is the thickness that he wrapped our counters & island, makes it look like a giant slab of something pricey.  

Glad he caught the vision of what we were going for in our kitchen.  

Bake up the Cherry Bar & tell me what you think. 
  I love to hear from you. Have a great day.
