  • In bottom of 9 x 13 pan (use glass for best presentation) mix flour, brown sugar, oleo and nuts. Mix like pie crust blending butter into flour. Bake at 350°F for 15 min. Cool and crumble with a fork. Remove 1 cup of mixture and save for the topping. Spread the remaining mixture in bottom of pan, pressing gently. Do not press down too firmly, crust should be crunchy and crumbly, not firm and tough. Wipe clean the inside of glass dish down to the mixture so that the next layer will show through.
  • In separate bowl, mix 1 large package Dream Whip with milk as indicated on package, and 2 Tbsp. (clear) vanilla. Use clear vanilla if you want the filling to be perfectly white. Whip as directed. In another bowl mix 1 cup powdered sugar and softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Mix with mixer till creamy. Add prepared Dream Whip mix to cream cheese mixture and beat well. Spread this mixture over the crumbs in the bottom of your 9 x 13 pan.
  • Carefully dribble 1 or 2 cans of cherry pie filling onto the cream cheese/Dream Whip base, spread gently bringing up a little of the creamed cheese mixture occasionally for looks. Sprinkle the remaining crumb and nuts mixture on top, cover and refrigerate overnight before serving.

Notes

This makes a beautiful desert prepared in a glass baking dish, especially at holidays that have a red theme, such as Christmas. This is an old family recipe which may be known as something else to others. We've always called it Cherry Torte. It's also a good cold dessert on a hot summer day!
