Never Miss a Delicious Recipe:

White Chocolate-Cherry Pie Bars

Remember our Chocolate Party last month, where we featured the infamous Chocolate-Strawberry Slump?  Well, the day for our monthly Chocolate Party hosted by Roxana’s Home Baking has arrived once again.  And our secret ingredient this time?  Cherries!!!  What about our recipe for today?  Whoo-hoo, get ready for this… it is none other than White Chocolate-Cherry Pie Bars!!!   Just thinking about them sets my heart racing.  🙂

I am crazy for all kinds of fruit, and of course, for desserts made with fruit.  And our two desserts that incorporate cherries so far, Almond-Cherry Cheesecake and these White Chocolate-Cherry Pie Bars, are no exception.  What can I say?  Both the cheesecake and the white chocolate-cherry pie bars are to die for…  My hubby would also state the same thing, if  his mouth weren’t full. 🙂 He was already a big fan of the cheesecake, and I can tell he is hooked on the cherry bars now since I have caught him “sampling” them again and again with a big smile on his face. 🙂 🙂  Boy, oh boy!  I hope I get the chance to enjoy at least one more before the whole batch disappears.

White Chocolate-Cherry Pie Bars

Talk about scrumptious cherry desserts!  Well, I hope you try my recipe and also the other chocolate-cherry desserts from our sweet party.  As you can see below, our chocolate-cherry beauties were crafted to be devoured both with the eyes and mouth!

Wishing you a great summer!

Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Batter:
  • 1 cup (or 2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 (20 ounces/ 567 g) cherry pie filling or topping
  • White Chocolate Glaze:
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F (about 180º C). Grease a 13 x 9 inches (about 33 x 23 cm) baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a mixer, cream butter and sugar together at medium speed. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until just incorporated (Do not over beat the eggs!!!). Beat the flour and salt at low speed until just incorporated. Mix in the vanilla and ½ cup of the chocolate chips until combined.

  3. Spread 3 cups of the batter in the greased baking pan. Then, spread pie filling on top of dough. Drop remaining dough by tablespoonfuls on top of cherry pie topping, spreading gently to cover filling as much as possible. Distribute the remaining ¼ cup of the white chocolate chips.



  4. Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool on a rack and slice. Since I used only 1 can of cherry pie filling instead of the two called for in the original recipe, these bars won't turn out soggy if served the following day.
  5. Make the glaze: Combine the chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave bowl and microwave at 50% power for about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is melted, pausing and stirring well every 30 seconds. Drizzle over bars using a fork. Bars can be served plain at room temperature, or warm accompanied by vanilla ice cream (my favorite way). Enjoy!

    Chocolate and cherries so go well together and this looks great, Denise!

    How cute are your red ramekins, so pretty!

  3. SallyBR June 3, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    That is one gorgeos looking dessert! Did you know I never cooked cherries in my life? Amazing, but true.

    I normally just eat the fruit, and I think once I had a cherry type cobbler, but that was it.

    oh, well – I am pinning your recipe right away!

    • Denise Browning June 3, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

      Thank you, Sally! I do appreciate both your comment and pin.

    White chocolate and cherries. Fabulous combination, Denise. The pie looks easy enough for little ones to help out a bit for father’s day.

    • Denise Browning June 3, 2013 at 12:16 pm #

      It is, Lail! Children can certainly spread the batter and filling, and help slice the bars. They would be delighted to top the bars with ice cream.

  5. Emily @ Life on Food June 3, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Crazy but I didn’t even think about white chocolate as an option. This looks fantastic!

    • Denise Browning June 3, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

      Thanks for stopping by, Emily! Yours looks great as well.

  6. Liz June 3, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    Oh, yum! I’d love to sink my teeth into one of those luscious looking white chocolate cherry pie bars =) So glad you shared your recipe, Denise. Perhaps I can replicate it in the Ninja Baker kitchen =)

    • Denise Browning June 3, 2013 at 8:03 pm #

  9. Daniela June 3, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    Wow Denise, what a gorgeous looking dessert!
    I can fully understand that your hubby can’t get enough of this, it’ s just so tempting.
    I love the addition of cherries they have such a bright color and a delicate aroma. Definitlely, one is not enough 🙂

    • Denise Browning June 3, 2013 at 8:01 pm #

      Thank you, Daniela! I have to say that both my husband and I love this dessert. Although I ate several bars, my husband ate almost the whole batch by himself. I think I will have to make these bars again. 🙂

  10. Deb June 3, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    I just adore the seductive red cherries and voluptuous cake in these White Chocolate Cherry Pie Bars!
    What a luscious dessert!

  11. Juliana June 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    Looks delicious and the pictures absolutely gorgeous.
    Hope you are having a lovely week my dear 🙂

    • Denise Browning June 5, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

      Thanks, Juliana! I’d love to have you as my neighbor. We’d share our dishes with each other and chat a lot. 🙂 Wishing you a great week!

  12. Kiran @ KiranTarun.com June 5, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    I want these deliciousness in my life! Love the use of vibrant juicy cherries here, Denise 🙂

  13. Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts June 5, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

    These bars sound wonderful! I love that you used white chocolate with them!

  14. Nami | Just One Cookbook June 5, 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    I made cherry bars for the first time a few days ago after we went cherry picking and it was so good (actually this was my first time making bars so I’m overly excited). Next time I want to mix with chocolate too! These bars look delicious, Denise!

    • Denise Browning June 5, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

      Thanks, Nami! These bars are really delicious. My husband is not a fan of white chocolate but he devoured these bars pretty quick. I think I’ll have to make this recipe again because it became one of his favs.

  15. Raymund June 6, 2013 at 2:00 am #

    I think one is enough, I mean 1 whole baking pan 🙂

    • Denise Browning June 6, 2013 at 8:25 am #

      LOL, Raymund!!!! You think exactly like my husband. When I said one is not enough, I was talking about one single bar but you and he was thinking about the whole baking pan… Hehe!!!

  16. The Café Sucre Farine June 6, 2013 at 7:21 am #

    I think you win the prize, Denise! These look and sound fabulou. I’m such a cherry nut, I know these would not last long around our house!

    • Denise Browning June 6, 2013 at 8:27 am #

      Chris: The whole baking pan disappeared quickly here. I ate a few but my husband served himself with most of the bars. He absolutely loved this dessert!!!

  17. Julia | JuliasAlbum.com June 8, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    I love everything cherries! Combining white chocolate with cherries in a dessert bar is brilliant and would be one of my favorite combinations!

    • Denise Browning June 8, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

      Thanks, Julia! I made these bars for the first time and I absolutely loved them.

  18. Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking June 11, 2013 at 10:23 am #

    From the moment you shared this in the facebook group I though the same – one bars is definitely not enough. These look amazing Denise!
    Thansk for sharing and for joining and for joining our party again this month. I hope you’ll party along with s many months to come!

    • Denise Browning June 11, 2013 at 7:01 pm #

    These look really delicious Denise, great idea for this month’s theme.

  20. Suzanne June 15, 2013 at 11:12 pm #

    I can see why one would not be enough, these bars look so good. Great recipe!

    • Denise Browning June 16, 2013 at 1:35 pm #

      Thanks, Suzanne! These bars are a really great treat!!!

  21. Lyuba@willcookforsmiles July 31, 2013 at 4:26 pm #

    Oh wow, that looks wonderfule! I love the sound of white chocolate and cherries together!
    I hope you won’t mind if I use this in the Food Fight feature (photo only and a link back, of course!)

    • Denise Browning July 31, 2013 at 6:02 pm #
