Ingredients

  • 1 15-oz box white or yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oats divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or almonds
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 large legg
  • 1 21 oz can premium cherry pie filling

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spritz the bottom and 1-inch up the side of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl using a fork sift together the cake mix, 1/2 cup oats and chopped nuts.
  • Add the melted butter and egg. Mix until fully moistened. Remove 1 cup mixture to a separate bowl.
  • Press the remaining dough onto the bottom of the dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the bottom crust is baking add the remaining 1/4 cup oats to the reserved dough. Mix just until incorporated and crumbly.
  • After 15 minutes remove from the oven and spread the pie filling over the crust. Sprinkle with the crumb topping.
  • Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Cut into 16 squares or 32 triangles and serve warm with ice cream or at room temperature.
  • Store tightly sealed chilled or at room temperature.
