1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup quick cooking (1 minute) oatmeal
1/2 cup shortening
1 can cherry pie filling (you can use 2 cans if you desire).
Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Then blend in the brown sugar and oatmeal, then cut in the shortening until the particles are the size of small peas.
Press half of the mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 inch pan. Spread with the pie filling and cover with the remaining oatmeal mixure, pressing down with a spoon or your fingers.
Bake in a 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm with whipped topping or ice cream.
