This dessert is a sweet treat, especially when garnished with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream! The crust and crumb topping have a wonderful nutty flavor, and the smooth fruit filling looks beautiful when served. —Ann Eastman Greenville, California

MY REVIEW

We used to call this Fruit Magic when Mom made it back in the 70's when I was little. So yummy we often asked for it instead of birthday cake.

I add 1 tsp. of vanilla to white and yellow cake mixes to take away the cakebox flavor. Hope this will help others to be happier when they need to use a box mix.

I have used this recipe with other pie fillings besides cherry or blueberry! I've used blackberry, strawberry, lemon, raspberry & apple pie filling. To the apple pie filling, I add 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. nutmeg & 1 Tbsp. lemon juice(MAY use either ReaLemon bottled lemon juice 0R fresh squeezed lemon juice.

I also add about 1 cup raisins, with 1/2 to 1 cup boiling water to plump them up, then I let the raisins sit 20 minutes & drain off the water before adding to apple pie filling!

I'd meant to say I'd ALSO used different flavors of pie fillings! Dawn E. Lowenstein

I meant to say I've used this recipe, using other flavors of pie filling besides cherry-the best ones to me are: apple, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, lemon filling! I take it to our chapel for fellowship time & it's a hit with everyone! When I use apple pie filling, I add 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon & 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1 Tbsp.lemon juice, mix it together & I also add about 1 cup raisins, soaked in boiling water for about 20 minutes & then drained.

I think the apple-raisin filling is a treat!
