Since it's also decadently rich and yummy, it's perfect for a holiday meal.
Christmas Cherry PDessert
I call this dessert a pie-cake because it’s like a delicious cherry pie, but it's not really a pie.
I use Comstock brand of cherry pie filling. There are other varieties and maybe some regional products for you. Choose one you like.
Served warm from the oven for a holiday meal, it's perfect by itself, or served à la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top.
Your guests will love it. Serves 12-16.
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 1 20-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice
- 1 can of Cherry Pie Filling (I tried a new organic product. The cherries might be organic, but it's got so much "filler" in it that it's like paste in my opinion.)
- 1 stick of butter, cut in slices
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 13x9x2 sheet cake pan or a pretty casserole dish.
- Dump the undrained crushed pineapple into the pan and spread evenly over the bottom.
- Spoon the pie filling over the pineapple and spread it as evenly as possible.
- Sprinkle the box of dry cake mix over the layers and spread it out evenly.
- Place the pieces of butter around the top.
- Bake for 48-53 minutes.
- Serve warm or cooled.
