These soft, fresh rolls filled with cinnamon and sugar, then drizzled with a maple syrup-infused frosting, are a treat for the taste buds and for the soul. There is something about homemade cinnamon rolls that conjures up feelings of peace, comfort, and well-being. Maybe it is the incredible aroma of cinnamon and dough baking in the oven, or maybe it is the warmth and sweetness of the first bite of the roll, but whatever the reason, homemade cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite comfort foods.
These delicious cherry crumble bars feature sweet-tart cherries baked with a tasty base and topping somewhere between a pie crust and a graham cracker. The bright flavor of the cherries is heightened with lemon zest and almond extract. Flavorful, colorful, and portable, these cherry crumble bars are great for dessert, a snack, or even breakfast!
