Cherry Pie Bars

When I saw this recipe Cupcake Diaries I had to make it!  These cherry pie bars were good!  I say splurge on a good brand of cherry pie filling which will just make them that much better.

1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1 (21oz) can cherry pie filling
2 tbsp milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350.  Line a 8x8 baking dish with foil then generously spray and set aside. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time then mix in the vanilla and salt.  In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.  Slowly mix the flour into the butter mixture. Remove 3/4 cup of the dough then press the remaining dough into the bottom of the baking dish. Spread the cherry pie filling over the top of the crust. Drop the 3/4 cup of dough over the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.  Whisk together the milk and powdered sugar then drizzle over the top of the cooled cherry pie bars.
