"You couldn't ask for anything more than a nutty crust topped with a smooth cream cheese mixture and sweet cherries," assures Kathy Branch of West Palm Beach, Florida. Since this dessert is made the night before, you don't have to worry about last-minute fuss.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • FILLING:
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cans (21 ounces each) cherry pie filling

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the flour, pecans and brown sugar. Stir in butter until crumbly. Lightly pat into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake until golden brown, 18-20 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. For filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Carefully spread filling over crust. Top with pie filling. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
