1 cup shortening such as Crisco
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
Cream together the shortening, sugar, eggs and flavoring until smooth and there are no sugar granules. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk.
Spread about 1/2 of the mixture over the bottom of the jelly roll pan. Spoon a can of cherry pie filling over the top of the batter. Dot the rest of the batter over the pie filling. DO NOT SPREAD. It will spread in baking.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes.
****If you don't like cherries, you can use any other type of pie filling. I'll be adding a picture as soon as I get one of these baked.
