  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, brown sugar and oatmeal. Cut in the shortening.
  3. Press half of the flour-oatmeal mixture in a 9×13-inch ungreased pan. Spread the cherry filling over the base layer, then cover with an even layer of the remaining flour-oatmeal mixture.
  4. Bake until the crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Transfer the dessert to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
