Oh, my poor father. He shouldn't have been reading my notes, because there was no cherry pie. The recipe was referring to the Cherry Pie Larabar. I stumbled onto the recipe for it when I was reading Use Real Butter. It's the perfect solution for my after work snack while I commute back home.
Cherry Pie Bars
adapted from Use Real Butter
Servings: 6 bars
110g (3/4 cup) medjool dates, pitted
120g (3/4 cup) dried cherries (I used bing.)
95g (3/4 cup) unsalted dry roasted almonds
- Pulse cherries and dates until it turns into a gooey ball in the food processor. Put in a bowl.
- Pulse almonds into coarse bits. Add to the dried fruit and mix until ingredients are evenly distributed throughout. I mixed with a large metal spoon, but hands will work just as well.
- Press into an 8 by 4 inch pan and allow it to firm up in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove and cut into 6 bars. Wrap with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.
