A Crowd Pleasing Dessert!!!

Need a quick recipe for a yummy dessert? It is a crowd pleaser - hands down!
Hot and gooey cherry filling topped with a sweet sugar icing.....
....and it looks like one of those delectable pastries from your favorite local bakery.
It will take no time at all and that should put a smile on your face!
Impressive AND fast!
But watch out....don't turn your back once you put it on the counter!
It will disappear in no time at all! These little chicks have no manners..... tisk...tisk...
....but the Scotties sure do! "May I have some.....PAW-LEEEEEZ!!!"
My "big sister" Miss Jean made this dessert and brought it over for all of us to enjoy.
(She is being quite the baking show off these days!!! Check out her Rhubarb recipe! DEE-LISH!))


Here is the recipe for her Cherry Almond Squares

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1 cup dairy sour cream
1/4 cup water
3 eggs
1 package Betty Crocker Super Moist Sour Cream White Cake Mix (or use whatever white cake mix you can find)
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Glaze (recipe below)

Generously grease and flour a jelly roll pan that is 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" and 1" deep.
Mix sour cream, water and eggs. Add the dry cake mix until it is moistened.
The batter will be slightly lumpy.
Spread in the pan.
Drop pie filling by generous spoon fulls on top of the batter.
Bake until cake springs back when touched, 25-30 minutes. Allow the cake to cool.
Srinkle with the almonds and drizzle with the glaze.


Glaze:

Mix 1 1/2 cups powder sugar with 2 TBLSP of milk. Stir in a few drops more of milk, if
necessary, to thin it to desired consistency. It should not be really runny.

Enjoy!
Note: This recipe would be fabulous with any fruit filling.

....ok.....I'm off to the can....
the paint can, that is! I am taking a wee bit o' a break for awhile. Toodles....
