So many people have raved about the blackberry pie squares I posted a few weeks ago, that I decided to try an adapted version with my homemade cherry pie filling from the fresh sour cherries I picked from my neighbor’s tree. This time I kicked up the flavor with some almond extract, and instead of a white drizzle, I gave the topping a chocolate twist.
These were delicious. The almond, cherry and chocolate go so well together! The only issue I had was that I must not have spread the pie filling evenly as I ended up with some areas that were dryer than others. I encourage you to try this recipe with whatever flavor pie filling you like. My friend Tami tried them with apple pie filling and said they were wonderful! Ingrid said hers were terrific – she made them with blueberry and added some lemon zest to the sugar mixture before baking.
