I adapted this from a recipe for apple bars made from a cake mix.

We like it served warm with ice cream.

Ingredients

3/4 c
butter, softened
1 box
dry yellow cake mix
1 can(s)
pineapple pie filling
1/2 c
coconut
1/2 c
coarsely chopped macadamia nuts (or pecans)
1/4 c
well drained, chopped maraschino cherries, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl use a fork to cut butter into dry cake mix, making a mixture that looks like crumbs. Set aside 1 cup of this mixture and press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch baking pan.
2
Spoon pineapple pie filling over the bottom crust in the pan. Set aside for a moment.

Mix remaining crumb mixture with coconut, nuts, and cherries. Sprinkle over pie filling. Bake for 45 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting.
