Dessert

Cherry Betty

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of cherry pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup diced pecan pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 sticks of melted butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray. Pour both cans of cherry pie filling into prepared baking dish. Top with cake mix. Sprinkle cinnamon over cake mix. Top with diced pecan pieces. Next, slowly drizzle melted butter over the entire dish. There is no need to stir this dish. It’s best to layer these ingredients. As it bakes, the butter will creep through the cake mix and the cherry pie filling will bubble up. It’s a great example of teamwork. Place in the oven and bake at 350 for 30 – 45 minutes, until top is golden brown and entire dish is bubbly.
