- 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix (I mixed in flaxseeds for some omega-3)
- 1 cup
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans (chopped however you'd like, as fine as sand, or coarse, or a mix. I find finer chopped pecans give a prettier presentation, but I usually just use the bag of chopped pecans "as is")

4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 - 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of pure vanilla abstract
12 vanilla wafers
1 (21 oz) can of cherry pie filling, or other pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of a muffin pan. Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Lay a vanilla wafer, flat side down, in each muffin cup. Spoon cream cheese mixture over the wafers. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow tarts to cool completely. Serve with cherry filling on top, or pie filling of your choice.
Yield: 12 tarts
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 20 minutes
2 Granny Smith Apples
2 cans Crescent Rolls (I used reduced fat)
2 sticks butter
1 ½ cups sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 12oz. can of Mountain Dew (I did use diet)
Peel, core, cut apples into 16 pieces (8 slices each).
Wrap each slice of apple in a crescent roll.
Place in a 13 x 9 Pyrex dish.
Mix the sticks of butter (melted), sugar and cinnamon.
Spoon mixture over crescent apple rolls in pan.
Pour can of Mountain Dew over the whole pan.
(Yes, they will be swimming!)
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 min. “Golden Brown”
It will be syrupy “ooey-gooey” good!
Very good with vanilla ice cream.
