Cherry Pie Day Is February 20th!
What a fun idea. Cherry Pies are pretty stinkin’ charming and cute!
But I am usually a make ahead kind of person, so maybe I will try these instead.
Cherry Pie Pecan Bars
Adapted from Lucky Leaf recipe
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups uncooked quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
13 tablespoons butter
7 tablespoons apple butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp baking soda
1 21 oz can cherry pie filling
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients except pie filling and marshmallows in a large mixing bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
2. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the crumb mixture for the topping. Press remaining mixture into ungreased 13×9 inch baking pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Gently spoon pie filling over hot crust. Sprinkle with marshmallows then sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
3. Continue baking for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on a rack.
