Cherry Chewbilees makes a good dish to carry to potlucks and parties. It's a hit for me at home, too—my husband rates it as one of his favorite desserts. We both love the country, and the small town we live in has a very rural-sounding nickname...it's know as the "Forestry Capital of the South"!

I have had this recipe for some time and it is always a hit each time I make it. Recently made it for my Bible Study class, it was all eaten and three people asked for the recipe. And yes, go with the walnuts. You won't be sorryl. Sooooooo Good!

The crust made with chopped walnuts is so so much better than with graham crackers.
