Cherry Bars

1 3/4 cups sugar
1 cup margarine, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-4 TBS milk
4 eggs
1 tsp almond extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Cherry pie filling

1. Preheat over to 350 and grease a sheet cake pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar, margarine, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Combine the flower and baking powder and stir into the creamed mixture. Reserve 1/3 of the dough and spread the rest into the bottom of the prepared pan. Cover this layer evenly with cherry pie filling. Drop the rest of the dough by spoonfuls on top of the cherry layer and spread to cover the best you can.
3. Bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven, until top is golden. Let cool slightly and drizzle with the glaze mixture. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
