Gluten Free and Dairy Free Fruit Bars

gluten free dairy free fruit bars

Ingredients:

1 cup shortening or butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
3 cups gluten free flour blend (or your favorite blend)
1 tsp xantham gum
1 tsp. salt

Filling:

2 – 21oz cans of pie filling (I’ve had cherry and blueberry – both were delicious!)

Instructions:

1. Cream together the shortening and sugar.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
3. Spread 3/4 of the batter onto a greased jellyroll pan.
4. Spread pie filling over the dough.
5. Dot with the remaining batter. (I put it in a ziplock bag and cut off one corner so I could pipe lines.)
6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. vanilla
a few drops of milk (or your favorite substitute) until it is easy to spread.
Drizzle over the dessert when it is cooled. Enjoy! :)
