3/4 cup margarine, or unsalted butter
2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
One 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Put the butter or margarine and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes, or until well mixed.

Combine the flour, oats, and baking soda. Add to the batter and beat on low speed until crumbly.

Spread two-thirds of batter over the bottom of an ungreased 13-x 9-x 2-inch baking pan. Press down to make a firm layer.

Put cherry filling in an electric blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into a medium saucepan.

Combine the granulated sugar and cornstarch and stir into the cherry filling. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbly. Stir in almond extract.

Pour over the oats layer and spread evenly. Top with the remaining oats mixture.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool in the pan, sitting on a wire rack, before cutting into bars.
