Ingredients

  • 1 c. butter softened
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cans 15.75 oz Duncan Hines Wilderness lemon pie filling

Glaze

  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  • Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, beating after each addition. Mix in extracts. Add flour and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Spread 3 cups of the batter in a greased jelly roll pan. Spread pie filling on top of dough. Drop remaining dough by tablespoonfuls on top of pie filling.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool.
  • Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over bars. If serving the next day wait and do this before serving or the bars will be a bit soggy! I also store my bars in the fridge to help them keep their shape.
