Sweet Cherry Bars Cookie Recipe

1 1/2 C. unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 C. granulated sugar
1 1/2 C. firmly packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
4 C. all-purpose flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 C. pitted and halved fresh sweet cherries
1/3 C. sliced almonds

Put butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed 3 to 4 minutes, or until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Grease the sides and bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan; set aside.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Add to butter mixture; beat 3 to 4 minutes, or until smooth batter forms. Spread half the batter in prepared pan. Scatter cherry halves over batter. Place spoonfuls of remaining batter on top of cherries; gently spread to cover fruit. Sprinkle almonds on top.

Bake in a preheated 350 F. oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until wooden pick or skewer inserted in middle comes out clean.

Makes 16 bars.
