This month my friends at Wayfair are celebrating National Cherry Month.

I was so excited to be invited because I have extolled my passion for cherries in other posts on the blog. So what delicious little bit of yum am I going to share? Well today I am pleased to bring you my awe-inspiring cherry pie bars!

What’s an awe-inspiring cherry pie bar you ask? Where to begin, where to begin? I love crumb topped cherry pie, cherry cobbler and brownies!

I’m not a fan of chocolate and cherries together though. This recipe is a brownie base but rather than chocolate it’s got a caramel, cinnamon flavor and oh goodness is it heavenly!

While these are good in their own right or can be used in so many different ways I took them to another level with cherries!

I took these brownies and turned them into an almost slab pie. I topped them with my homemade cherry pie filling. Why stop there though? No, no, no, I went and made it even more awesome by topping it all with an Ameretti crumb topping.
