Cherry Cobbler Bars

August 9, 2018Teresa

Cherry Cobbler Bars are totally awesome. These delectable ooey, gooey bars have a delicious fresh cherry and almond filling to die for! The crust and topping also include almond extract to increase the flavor. These bar-type cookies are just what the doctor ordered if you’re looking for cherry desserts. They’re not only pleasing to the palate but delightful to the eyes. These festive and beautiful cookies will take your breath away. 🙂

Back in May, I was asked to be a “Canbassador” and reviewer for Northwest Cherry Growers in Washington state. While no money was exchanged, I did receive 20 pounds of fresh, plump irresistible cherries. These cherries were massive. They were so enjoyable to eat plain, but I made ten different desserts out of them. Those desserts included a Cherry Crumb Coffee CakeCherry Cream Cheese Pound Cake, Southern Cherry CobblerCherry Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies, Cherry Almond Ooey Gooey Blondies, Cherry Cobbler Cookies, Cherry White Chocolate Chip Blondies, Cherry Pie Bars, Cherry Crumb Bars and these delicious jewels.

All the desserts turned out amazing, but I have to admit I’m always a sucker for gooey desserts. The combination of almond and cherries in cobbler form was spectacular. I adapted a Peach Cobbler Bars recipe and thought it turned out exceptionally well with cherries. No, it turned out spectacularly with cherries! This drool-worthy dessert was quickly packed up for the freezer for John to give away as gifts. But not before I snuck a few pieces beforehand. 🙂

If you’re looking for a fantastic summer dessert, Cherry Cobbler Bars need to be on your “to try” list. These cherry-filled bars will knock your socks off–and I’m pretty sure you’ll have no leftovers after you serve them.
