This recipe is from my sister, Jennifer and is a favorite to take to pot lucks and family gatherings.
1 pkg white or yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
21 oz. can of fruit pie filling
Heat oven to 350. Spray a 12 inch pizza pan or use a 13x9 pan.
Combine cake mix, 1 cup oats, and 6 tablespoons butter until crumbly. Reserve 1 cup for topping.
Add egg and blend well. Press mixture into prepared pan.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Meanwhile...To the reserved crumbs add remaining 1/4 cup oats, 2 tablespoons butter, nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix well.
Remove base from oven and spread with pie filling. Sprinkle with topping. Return to oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until topping is light golden brown.
Cool completely before serving 12.
(*lizzie's note--make this extra decadent and drizzle on a swirl of icing!)
