These bars have a cookie like crust and a cherry jam filling on the inside. The filling was my favorite part- I could’ve eaten just that with a spoon. Of course, the cookie texture surrounding it didn’t hurt though 😉

Let’s Make These Bars!

First, you’ll whisk the eggs then add in the rest of the ingredients for the bars. I mixed mine in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer but you could use a mixing bowl + hand mixer. You’ll want to make sure it’s blended together well. Put in the fridge and let cool 1 hour.

Then line a brownie pan with parchment paper and press 2/3 of the dough into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F.
