Cherry Bars

Cherry Bars - recipe from my friend Kara Cook
1 cup sugar

1 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries
1/2 cup powdered sugar maraschino cherry juice
Cream sugar and butter. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt, then cherries. Chill for at least 1 hour. Pat dough into a lightly greased 15″ x 10″ jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for 15- 18 minutes. Cool completely and drizzle with glaze. To make glaze, combine powdered sugar and enough cherry juice till you get the right consistency.–Make sure you chill the dough, or you will make a sticky mess trying to spread it in the pan.
