Cherry Bars

1 3/4 c. sugar                  
1 c. butter                     
1 t. vanilla                       
4 eggs                        
3 c. flour 
1 1/2 t. baking powder 
1 can of cherry pie filling   
 1 1/2 c. powder sugar
2 T. milk
1/2 t. almond extract
{powder sugar, milk, and almond extract make the glaze to go on top}

Press 1/2 of the batter in a jelly roll pan.  Place 1 can of cherry pie filling on top, then drop the rest of the batter by spoonfuls on top of the pie filling. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.  Glaze while bars are still hot. I also like to add cream cheese when I add the cherries, I just take chunks of cream cheese and flatten it with my fingers and randomly place it. But you don't have to do that! That's just the way we like them.
