Cherry Cranberry Dessert






My husband loves cherries and for his birthday he always wants cherry pie, but sometimes, like this year, I don't have time to make cherry pie, so I get creative in making a cherry dessert and he loves it. This one was a special hit... and best of all was that it was fast and easy.










This is how it looked when it came out of the oven... don't judge the dessert by its looks though... it was wonderful. :)

We served it warm with vanilla ice cream and all agreed that we need to keep this recipe and make it again... and we will!

1 Yellow Cake Mix   ................ Pour dry cake mix over the uncooked dessert in the 9" x 13" pan.
1 stick butter, melted..................Drizzle over the dry cake mix.

Bake 350 degrees for 40 minutes.(may need to adjust time)

    1. It was perfect for the rush time we were in as we were getting ready for a huge garage sale... It tasted so good, that I didn't need to feel guilty of not making the pies. :) We all liked it.
