I really love the Cherry Pie Lara Bars. The other flavor of Lara Bars are ok, but Cherry Pie Bar is my favorite, which is surprising because I don't like regular cherry pie, or pie in general. But when I saw this recipe at Debbie Does Dinner, I knew I would have to try them. Turns out, they are so easy to make and only 4 ingredients! I ended up sending them to my May Foodie Pen Pal Tiffany, and she liked them as well. I will definitely be making these again and again!
