A wonderful dessert to take to a potluck. Or, serve to your Valentine. I derived this recipe from my friend Linda, although I tweaked it somewhat to my liking.


Enjoy!

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 300 degree F.

In a medium sized bowl, combine cake mix ( after reserving 3/4 cup ) with 1 egg and oil.

Press into bottom and somewhat up the sides of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.
2In a large bowl, with hand mixer, blend cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar.
3Add eggs and reserved 3/4 cup cake mix. Beat until smooth.

Bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until set and beginning to become golden around edges.
6Spread on the cherry topping and refrigerate until chilled and ready to serve. I also add a dollop of whipped cream to each individual piece.
