I've had this recipe for years and have made it many times. It is a family favorite and very welcomed when taken to a potluck or to share with friends. It is quick and easy to prepare. When my children were small, they loved it with a scoop of ice cream on top or even whipped cream.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, add pie filling. Sprinkle lemon juice over pie filling. Sprinkle dry cake mix over pie filling and slice butter in pats and place on top of cake mix or melt butter and mix with dry cake mix until mixture is crumbly, then put over cherry pie filling. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake about 45 minutes until golden and bubbly.
