Cherry Dessert

This is a flexible recipe that I love to use for a quick, easy dessert.

1 -2 cans cherry pie filling (I use about 1 1/2 can and save the rest for topping on ice cream or pancakes)
1 cherry chip cake mix (can use yellow or white)
1 stick margarine
slivered almonds

Heat oven to 325.

Spread cherry pie filling in bottom of 13 x 9 inch pan. Spread dry cake mix over the cherries.
Melt margarine and drizzle over the cake mix. Sprinkle top with slivered almonds.

Bake 50-55 minutes or until bubbly and top is lightly browned.

Great served warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

The original recipe used 1 large can sliced peaches, butter pecan cake mix and pecans on top. I have used yellow cake mix with the peaches and it is good too. I want to try this with apple pie filling and spice cake mix. Also think blueberry filling with lemon cake mix would be good!

Let me know if you try it with other combinations.

I did make this with apple pie filling and spice cake mix. I used 2 cans of pie filling and made it in 2 deep dish 10-inch pie plates. I split the cake mix and margarine between the 2. It was good!
