Ranch Raised - Episode 118 Cherry Bars

Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!

I promised you a Jones Ranch favorite today! It is loved 24 hours a day, it uses up a few of these spring eggs, and it is simple. So basically, it checks all of the boxes!

Let’s get these Cherry Bars started! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together 1 cup of softened butter, 2 cups of sugar, 4 eggs, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon almond extract (you can sub vanilla extract, I just love the cherry/almond combo). Then fold in 3 cups of flour. You will spread ¾ of this batter into a 15x10x1 inch pan. Kinda of weird size, so if you don’t have it, be a problem solver.

Then spread 2 cans of cherry pie filling over that batter and then drop the remaining batter randomly over the top of the pie filling. Pop in the oven until golden brown, around 35-40 minutes.
While in the oven, you will want to whip up the yummy glaze. 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, 2-3 tablespoons of milk, and 1 teaspoon of almond extract (you can sub vanilla extract).

Once the bars come out of the oven, let them cool and then drizzle that glaze over the top. Plain or ala mode this recipe is a winner that can be served from sun up to sun down during this busy season of life.

You will soon see why cherry pie filling is a pantry staple around here. This recipe can be found on the Ranch Raised FB page and the Your Ag Network app and website. See you all tomorrow!

Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 3 daughters near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.

Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.

You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report that is broadcast on 60 radio stations with coverage in 9 states, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and highlights R-CALF’s work on industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the ranch.

Cattle producers are her people. She will meet you at the county fair, at the sale barn, or anywhere the dusty trail leads.
