Cherry Chessman Delight

This recipe combines the delightful flavors of cherry pie filling, Chessman cookies, and cake mix to create a mouthwatering dessert that’s both easy to make and delicious. With just a few simple ingredients and straightforward instructions, you’ll have a decadent treat perfect for any occasion.


  • 2 cans of Cherry Pie Mix
  • 1 bag of Chessman Cookies (approximately 24 cookies)
  • Vanilla or Yellow box of Cake Mix
  • 1 1/2 Sticks of Butter
  • 8 oz. Whipped Cream Cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a 9×13 baking dish, create a row by layering Chessman Cookies from one end to the other.
  3. Open and evenly distribute 2 cans of cherry pie filling over the layer of cookies, using a spatula to spread it out.
  4. Dollop the whipped cream cheese all over the pan, then carefully integrate it into the cherry pie filling using a spatula or spoon.
  5. Sprinkle the dry Vanilla or Yellow Cake mix over the cherry filling, ensuring even coverage from edge to edge.
  6. Slice the 1 1/2 sticks of butter thinly and layer them evenly over the cake mix. If the butter slices are too thick, consider slicing more to ensure complete coverage, allowing it to melt into the cake mix.
  7. Bake the dish at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-55 minutes or until set.


  • Ensure that the butter slices are thinly sliced to allow them to melt evenly over the cake mix.
  • If needed, you can add more butter to ensure complete coverage around the edges of the cake mix.
  • Monitor the baking time closely to prevent overcooking.
