Hi slowinsjams,You're using the 9 x 13 pan to toast the nuts and crumbs. If you read a bit further in that paragraph you'll see " Set aside 1 cup of crumbs. While warm, press the remaining crumbs into a greased 9-in. pie plate"That forms the crust for the pie.Hope that helps!

Is the filling for a pie or the 9X13 pan in the first paragraph of directions?

I didn't make the crust (allergies) so used a package Graham cracker crust. Used vanilla extract (allergies) and 1/2 tub cool whip (lazy). Delicious. Would like more cheese layer.

Very good! Although I thought it could have used a little more of the cream cheese layer for the amount of cherry layer. Loved the crust!
