    Top cheesecake with remaining cherry pie filling. Garnish with whipped topping, if desired.

    Just a question. When I made the brownie mix it was dry and not a batter. Why?

      It’s supposed to be like a crust. Not moist like brownies.

      The taste and consistency of the brownie crust will be a little different than intended, but it should still be delicious. Enjoy!
