My grandmother used to make this back when I was a wee little runt. She called it Peek-a-boo. So thats what I call it. It has a very simple list of ingredients and the kids love it (and so do I).
This is a Cherry Peek-a-boo
The ingredient list-
2 Sticks butter = 226.8 Grams = 8oz.
2 Cups Sugar = 426 Grams = 15oz.
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 Cups Flour = 492 Grams = 17.3oz.
And then 2 cans of your favorite pie filling
20-21oz. Cans = 567-595 Gram Cans
Directions are just as easy.
1) Cream butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
2) Mix in flour until all incorperated
3) Spread 2/3 of dough into a 12x18" greased cookie sheet
Spread both cans of pie filling across top of dough. Then take remaining dough from bowl and flatten little pieces across top of filling.
Bake at 375' F. for 30 minutes (tops should be lightly browned)
Final product is kind of like brownie consistency. The Peek-a-boo is named from the fruit kinda peeking through the dough on top.
Not very fancy, but goes good with vanilla icecream or as a stand alone dessert.
