Who likes cherries?
I know I do!  Pie, not so much.  I'm not a fan of pie crust.  But when I saw this recipe, I had to give it a try.  And it was delicious!  This delectable dessert would be great for any occasion.  Even as an upcoming Valentine treat.  :)

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp almond extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 (21 ounce) cherry pie filling


  • Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs and beat well.  Beat in extracts.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour and salt.  Add to the creamed mixture.  Mix until combined.
  • Grease a 15x10x1 pan or 9x13, whichever one you decide to use.  Spread 3 cups batter in the bottom of your pan.  Spread with pie filling.  Drop remaining batter on top of pie filling.
  • Bake at 350 degress for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes clean.  Cool on wire rack.
  • Top with whipped topping.
