I love these bars, then again I love sweets. Two non favoring dessert family members actually had seconds. I used blueberry pie filling. It was stated that the bars tasted something like the Hostess Blueberry Pies.
It was simple and plain in my opinion. It tasted like a vanilla wafer cookie with cherry pie filling spread on it. It's so sweet you can eat it without the icing. Sorry to say I don't think I will be making this one again. I would give it one star but my son said it should be a least two stars due to the sweetness factor.
very good --nothing but good reviews from everyone who eat these. did have to bake 20 minutes longer till golden brown. YUM YUM!
This recipe was very good, I think next time I make them I would use 1 large can of pie filling instead of 2 regular size cans.
I use this recipe often. I also bake a bit longer. I also substitute blueberry pie filling and add a crumb topping for a variation. This recipe is a great last minute dessert for company.
