Ingredients

1 1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
crisco
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 tsp
almond extract
4
eggs
3 c
flour
1 can(s)
cherry pie filling

GLAZE

2 c
confectioners sugar
1 tsp
vanilla
2 Tbsp
butter, softened
1 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Lightly grease a jelly roll pan. Blend the following ingredients with a mixer: sugar, butter, shortening, baking powder, vanilla, almond extract and eggs. If you aren't in the habit of keeping almond extract around, just replace it with vanilla. If a little vanilla is good, more is better! Blend on low, then turn up the mixer to high for 3 minutes.
2
Add the flour and blend by hand. Spread 2/3 of the batter in the jelly roll pan. Spread the pie filling over the batter and then, drop the remaining batter by spoonfuls onto the pie filling.
3
Bake for 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Don't let it brown too much! While the cake is still slightly warm, drizzle with glaze.

Directions for Glaze

3 Spread or pour immediately over warm Danish.
