Cherry Pie Bars

These bars are super quick and easy to make!
According to my mother the crust is similar to a sponge cake...since I don't think I've ever eaten one, we will just have to take her word for it! (She's always right ;)
I made the mistake of putting it in the fridge overnight which really dried them out, so it is better to eat these fresh.
According to my sister Jen "this dessert is way better than a blizzard from DQ!"...I wont tell you that Jen doesn't really like blizzards...but if that don't make you want to eat them then I'm not sure what will!! ;)
