Cherry Dump Cake

Janel Kutzler


The original recipe called for a can of fruit pie filling and a can of pineapple. We don't like pineapple so I used two 21 ounce cans of pie filling. The original recipe called for two sticks of butter. I used ONE stick of butter instead. I also added walnuts BEFORE I put the butter on. Enjoy!
