2 cans cherry pie filling 1 package (18 ounce size) yellow cake mix 1/4 cup butter, softened 1/2 cup chopped nuts vanilla ice cream or whipped cream
Pour cherry pie filling into slow cooker, spreading it out evenly.
In large bowl combine dry cake mix with butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over cherries. Sprinkle with nuts. Turn slow-cooker on low, cover and cook 3 hours. Serve hot from slow cooker with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
I didn't look at the cake mix package until after I made the recipe and realized it wasn't 18 ounces so the topping was maybe more greasy than it should be. Everything tasted good. I was at the store yesterday and couldn't find any 18 ounce cake mix packages so I'm wondering what the butter should be adjusted to?

Holy cow! thought it would be too easy to be any good and the whole family loved it. Hard to mess it up and was wonderful with vanilla ice cream.
