Cherries are my absolute favorite fruit and I look forward to cherry season every year! I just picked up my first bag of the season at the grocery store and had to make these Cherry Pie Bars!

These bars are sweet, fruity and delicious! The crust is crunchy, the filling is soft and full of berries. Each bite is absolute perfection.

You can serve these at any summer party, BBQ or potluck. They're also great for dessert any time you have a sweets craving.

The ingredients for this recipe are simple. Although there are quite a few different steps to make them, the recipe is pretty easy overall.

  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks chilled butter, cubed (3/4 cup)

  1. Crust and Topping: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 7x11 2 quart glass baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and cubed butter with a dough blender until you reach a crumbly consistency.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside while you make the filling.
  5. Filling: Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Add sugar, sour cream, flour & salt and whisk until combined.
  6. Gently stir in the cherries. Spoon the mixture evenly over the crust.
  7. Sprinkle the reserved crust mixture evenly over the filling.
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the filling is set. Cool for 1 hour before cutting and serving.
