Classic cherry pie bars with a summer beach bonfire twist. Whiskey smoked spices add cozy complexity while caramelized marshmallows add sticky s'mores realness to this easy, crowd-pleasing dessert.

Ingredients

½ cup unsalted butter

½ cup granulated sugar



2 eggs


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling

¾ cup mini marshmallows

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Step 1: Make dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9 baking pan and line with parchment paper. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, granulated sugar, Whiskey Barrel Smoked Sugar, and Black Label Reserve Smoked Salt & Pepper for 5 to 7 min. until fluffy and lightened in color. Add eggs and Pure Almond Extract, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour and mix until just combined.

Step 2: Assemble and bake

Spread ⅔ of dough to evenly fill bottom of baking pan. Spread cherry pie filling in an even layer. Drop remaining ⅓ dough by teaspoonfuls over filling. Top with marshmallows. Bake for 40 min. or until marshmallows are golden brown and center is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Sprinkle with Black Label Reserve Smoked Salt & Pepper to taste, slice, and serve.
