1/2cupcold buttercut into cubes
1box cake mixany flavor will work, I like Betty Crocker's Golden Vanilla
18 oz package cream cheese, softened
2cupspowdered sugarmore for dusting
2teaspoonsalmond extract OR vanilla if you prefer
110 oz package cherry baking morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13" pan with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine butter and cake mix, and beat on medium until crumbly. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Using a wooden spoon or spatula that's been sprayed with cooking spray, spread mixture into the bottom of prepared pan. Sprinkle cherry chips evenly over the batter. In another bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla mixing until combined. Pour evenly over cherry chips, spreading all the way to the edges. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the center is set. Cool for a bit and dust with powdered sugar. You can either serve them now, or refrigerate and serve chilled like you would a cheesecake. Make sure they have cooled before cutting. If you chill them first, let them sit out for a few minutes before cutting and they will cut much prettier. Store them in the refrigerator though. That is, if you have any left over! Enjoy!
