Cherry Almond Crunch Bars

No funny story to go with this one, sorry folks!  I was craving almonds and cherries together, and we had a Christmas party to go to, so I HAD to make something I was craving, that was easy to make.  I spent the day at the mall, waiting in a 2 1/2 hour line to meet the Barefoot Contessa herself!  YAY! :)  So I was TIRED!


Cherry Almond Crunch Bars

1/2 Cup Country Creamery Unsalted Butter
1 Pkg. Baker's Corner Yellow Cake Mix
1 Can Baker's Corner Cherry Pie Filling
1/2 Cup chopped Almonds (or walnuts or pecans) * this is seasonal, you might have to buy whole and chop them up yourself!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, cut butter into the cake mix.  Set aside about 1 cup.  Pat remaining crumbs into a 13X9 pan.  Press onto the bottom and up about 1" of the sides.  Spread pie filling over the bottom crust.  Add almonds to the reserved cake mix/butter mixture and mix well.  Crumble over the top of the pie filling.

Bake 30-35 minutes, until browned and bubbly.

Tastes great warm with whipped cream, or ice cream!   Also great chilled and served "bar" style.
