This recipe was given to me by a neighbor when I had been married for only two years and had one little girl one years old. I have now been married for 55 years, have had four children, seven grandchildren, six and one-half great- grandchildren and that little girl is now the grandmother of two beautiful little girls. It brings back such fond memories of building a family and a life together with my husband, and of people not seen for years that I treasured in my life. I cannot make and eat it without immediately transposing myself back in time. I love sharing it because it is so simple, so good and so easy to have all the ingredients on hand!


  • 2 cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1/4 lb. butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts ( I prefer walnut)


  • Spread cans of cherry pie filling evenly over 9" x 13" cake pan.
  • Sprinkle cake mix evenly over all.
  • Spread butter (cut into thin slices) evenly over all.
  • Finally, spread chopped nuts evenly over all.
  • Bake approximately 45 minutes in 350 degree oven.
