These bars were both easy and delicious. You can use any pie filling you like. For a Black Forest bar throw in some chocolate chips.

Cherry Bars

    1 Cup Butter, softened
    2 Cups Sugar
    1 Teaspoon Salt
    4 Large Eggs
    1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    1/4 Teaspoon Almond Extract
    2 Cans (21 ounces each) Cherry Pie Filling
    1 Cup Confectioners' Sugar
    1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
    2 - 3 Tablespoons Milk

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Gradually add flour.
Spread 3 cups dough into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spread with pie filling. Drop remaining dough by teaspoonfuls over filling. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar, extracts and enough milk to reach desired consistency; drizzle over top.
