Not a breakfast person? Don’t worry, these bars can be eaten any and all times throughout the day. This recipe is easy and a delicious treat! We had an employee bring them in to work and they were gone by lunchtime.
These would be great to add to a breakfast or brunch spread as well as a delicious dessert after dinner.
The pie filling is an easy way to make this recipe, but you can always make your own pie filling. Check out this recipe made with our Canned Tart Cherries in Water or use our Individually Quick Frozen tart cherries. The canned tart cherries make for a great alternative to fresh or frozen tart cherries. There are absolutely no additives, just tart cherries! Frozen works well if you are shipping in the winter or are a Michigan or Chicago customer (ground UPS arrives the next day).
