Cherry Crumb Dessert

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

    This recipe has been in my mom's cookbook for 20 years! She clipped the recipe out of the newspaper, taped it toher book with a note that says "great, easy receipt!". During the cold months she makes it using apple pie filling and during the warm months cherry. Also, a great dessert to make when out of eggs. As Dawn Lowenstein mentions, try different variations, you won't be disappointed!

    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.

    This was so easy to put together! We look forward to the next time I make it.

    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.
