2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
In a medium mixing bowl, blend the above ingredients by mixing the brown sugar and flour together. Add the butter and cut in as though making pastry dough. Add the chopped nuts and press the mixture onto the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow crust to cool. Crumble and spread evenly in the pan.
2 cups whipping cream
1 pkg (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
2 cans cherry pie filling
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla*
Whip the cream and set aside. In a mixin bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until well blended. Fold in the whipped cream and the cherry pie filling. Pour filling over the crust. Refrigerate overnight before cutting to serve.
*To change the flavor slightly, use 1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring and 1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring.
