     Cherry Bars

Category   Breakfast - Brunch
Sub Category   None

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening - I used Crisco
1-3/4 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsps. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 (21 oz. each) cans cherry pie filling ----see note---
1/2 cup sliced almonds, optional
1-1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
3 - 4 tsps. milk
Notes- any fruit flavored pie filling can be substituted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, and extract until combined. Mix in flour. Reserve 1-1/2 cups of the dough and spread the remaining dough in the bottom of an ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
Bake for 12 minutes. Spread pie filing over crust in pan. Spoon reserved dough into small mounds on top of pie filling. Sprinkle with nuts, if using. Bake about 30 minutes more or until top is a light brown. Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Drizzle top with icing. Cool completely.
To make icing, mix the powdered sugar and extract in a small bowl. Add just enough of the milk to make a smooth icing that will drizzle.
