These are easy to make and scrumptious!!!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 12

Ingredients

For the batter:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened, or 2 sticks
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips divided
  • 1 cherry pie filling or topping 20 ounces/ 567 g

For the white chocolate glaze:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350º F (about 180º C). Grease a 13 x 9 inches (about 33 x 23 cm) baking pan and set aside.
  • 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 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips until combined.
  • 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 1/4 cup of the white chocolate chips.
  • 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.
  • 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!
