Buttery pie crust topped cherries and a sweet glaze.
I’ve never posted a pie recipe before. Not because I don’t bake them, but because they’re never “pretty”. They usually taste good, but they look like a hot mess.
Yeah I’m talking about you ugly crust pumpkin pie and boiled over apple pie. They might be okay for family, but they’re not something I’d want to take to a party or show off on the blog.
However, these Cherry Pie Bars are nearly impossible to mess up! They make a great treat for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or just because!
