  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Grease or spray 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • 2
    On low speed, beat in flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. Set aside 1/4 cup of white chocolate bar chunks. Stir in remaining chunks, almonds and cherries. Spread batter evenly in pan.
  • 3
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until top is golden brown and set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave reserved white chocolate bar chunks and oil uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted; stir well. Drizzle glaze over bars. Or if desired, place glaze in small food-storage plastic bag and cut off small tip from one corner of bag; drizzle glaze in diagonal lines over bars. Let stand until glaze is set, about 3 hours. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows.

Expert Tips

  • The slivered almonds can be whole or chopped, or left out completely, if you like.
  • To make cutting the bars easier, line the pan with foil, and then grease the foil. Bake the bars in the foil-lined pan. When the bars are cool, use the foil to lift them from the pan and place on a flat surface for cutting.
