Serves 3 dozen | Prep Time 15 minutes plus chilling | Cook Time 35 minutes plus cooling


1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1 cup cold butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp almond extract
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling
2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped almonds

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and cocoa.

Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.

Add the egg and almond extract until blended.

Set aside 1 cup for the topping.

Press the remaining crumb mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan.

Carefully top with the pie filling.

Combine the chips, almonds, and the reserved crumb mixture.

Sprinkle over the pie filling.

Bake at 350 F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting into bars.
