Cherry Almond Tart
1 package (181/2 ounces) yellow cake mix
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened (I used 2-8-oz. packages)
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar (I used 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar)
1 21-ounce can cherry pie filling
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Combine the cake mix, cracker crumbs and butter until crumbly. Add egg; mix well. Stir in chopped almonds. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 14-inch pizza pan. I didn't have a pizza pan so I used a 9"x 13" pan and a small pie plate.
Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl. Spread over crust. Top with pie filling. Sprinkle with toasted, sliced almonds. Yield 14-16 servings. Store leftovers in refrigerator.
