These scrumptious Cherry Pie Bars brings out the best that cherries have to offer. The crumble topping is so amazing and complements the cherries with the perfect combination of tart and sweet. It is hard to keep from picking up the little bit of crumbs that end up on your plate and sweeping them in your mouth. They are so amazingly delicious.
