Cherry Bars

Since picking cherries a few weeks ago, I've been carefully plotting how to use them.  There will be cherry cobbler and cherry pie, of course. These cherry bars will have to be added to the regular line up as well!

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 cans cherry pie filling

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 Tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, vanilla and almond extract.  Sift together flour and salt.  Add to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.  Spread about three cups of the batter into a greased 13x9 baking pan.  Top with pie filling. Drop the remaining batter by teaspoonfuls over the pie filling.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Mix together glaze ingredients.  Cool on a wire rack and drizzle with glaze.
