  CHERRY BARS                 Patricia Holst/

   1 package Sugar Cookie Mix
   1 can cherry pie filling   ( you could also use Blueberry, apricot, etc.)
   1 stick of butter,  melted
   1 egg
   1 Tsp. almond extract or flavor (do not use flavor with 
                                                any pie filling but, cherry.)

   Preheat oven to temperature on Sugar Cookie Mix.
   Have ready a cake pan, 13 x 9 pan.  Do not oil, grease
   or spray, the cookie mix will take care of that.

   In a medium bowl, empty Sugar Cookie mix, while melting
   butter.  ( I use my micro to melt, on auto defrost 1lb or min.
   if not fully melted, repeat auto defrost for 30 secs.)
   While melting butter, crack egg on one side of the bowl,
   when butter is melted, using a spatula, pour and scrape the
    butter on the other side of cookie mix.  ( This prevents your
    egg from cooking)  
    With spatula, mix your cookie mix, butter and egg together
    well, until it looks like cookie dough before baking
    Take 2/3 of your cookie mix and place in cake pan, set the
     other 1/3 aside.  Now, if you spray your hands with cooking
     or olive oil spray, it helps with this next part.  You press
     the dough into the bottom of pan with your fingers, making
     sure to push about 1/2 inch up side of pan.
     Next, open your can of cherries, put in 1 tsp. of Almond 
     flavor, stir gently, right in the can, with a table knife.  
     Pour this filling onto your crust, spread evenly.
     With leftover dough, pinch off pieces about the size of a 
     quarter and drop onto cherry pie filling, all over top, until
      all is used up.
     Place into top shelf of oven, time for 12 mins.  When timer
     goes off, place pan on bottom shelf of oven, set timer for 
     10  mins.  Remove and check bars.  They should be golden
     brown but, not burnt on bottom.  Watch the bottom.  If the
     bars don't appear done, place back into oven for about 3-4
     mins , again, take out and check the bars, remember golden
     but, not burnt on the bottom.
     When done, remove from oven, allow to cool completely on
     a cooling rack.  Then cut into bars, and enjoy.
     These things are fantastic.  If you like this recipe, let me
     know and I will send more.
