How to Make Cheery Cherry Delite - Cass

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Get out a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.
    In a medium bowl, cream the butter with the brown sugar. Once fluffy, mix in the flour until well blended. Stir in the pecans.

    Spread onto the bottom of the baking dish evenly.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes.

    Take from oven and while crust is hot, take a fork and crumble the crust. Set aside to cool.
  3. Once crust is cool, prepare filling.

    In a medium sized bowl, mix the cream cheese with the confectioners' sugar until creamy and well blended. Mix in the extracts.

    Fold in the cool whip until there is no visible streaks of cream cheese.
  4. Spread this mixture over the crust evenly.

    Spread the 2 cans of pie filling over the top. Cover and refrigerate several hours before serving.

    *** This dessert needs to be taken from the fridge about 30 minutes before serving, so is easier to cut and serve....or before serving, place bottom of dish in some warm water...

    Enjoy!
