Cherry Almond Coffee Squares


1 c sour cream
1/4 c water
3 eggs
1 pkg white cake mix
1 can cherry pie filling
1/4 c sliced almonds
--Glaze--

Grease and flour jelly roll pan. Mix sour cream, water, and eggs. Stir in cake mix (dry) until moistened. (Batter will be slightly lumpy) Spread in pan. Drop pie filling by spoonfuls on to batter. . . Bake at 350 until cake springs back when touched lightly, 25-30 minutes. Cool. Sprinkle with almonds and drizzle with glaze.

Glaze: Mix 1 1/2 c powdered sugar and 2 Tb milk. Stir in a few drops of additional milk, if necessary, until smooth and desired consistency OR heat 1/2 c vanilla frosting and 2 tsp water in 1 qt saucepan over medium heat until smooth. A tasty valentine dessert . . . not overly sweet, similar to the flavor of strawberry shortcake.

SUPER recipe! Do you think it would work with jam instead of pie filling? I have issues with whole fruit in dessert. lol. But this looks so yummy!

Experimenting is how recipes are born! The fruit sinks down in the cake mix when it cooks, so not sure what the jam would do.
