Wow turned out great. I made the cherry pie filling myself as I had about 4 cups of fresh cherries about to go bad. These bars were easy and very tasty! Thank you! I shared on instagram the final product at lisahud17

VERY good & simple. Cherry was delicious but can't wait to try it again with different fruits too!

I made two batches. I'm not a big fan of cherry filling so I made one with peaches and one with mixed berry filling. They are both really, really good! Also, it was quick and easy to put together.
