While making plans for our Youth Group Valentine's Dinner, the youth leader came across this recipe for our dessert. But I decided I should make one before we made our decision. I am so glad we did!
You know how sometimes when you're making something, you just know it's not right? I knew pretty much right away this just wasn't going to work.
I was right! It was horrible! Hard, dry, just plain icky...
Then I started to think about what I would do, if it were my recipe. Went to the store, picked up new ingredients and whipped up a second one. Tried it out on my out-of-town guests and the youth group kids... PERFECT!
*Side note: Wal-Mart's Great Value brand pie filling has just as much fruit as the name brand claiming to have 20% more fruit and no high fructose corn syrup!
1 white cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 can cherry pie filling
Mix cake mix and butter until crumbly. Remove 2/3 cup and add brown sugar. Mix into a streusel topping.
Add egg to remaining cake mix/butter mixture. Mix until smooth.
Press into an 11-12" circle on greased baking sheet.
Spread pie filling on top. Top with streusel topping. You might have a bit left over...
