Lucky Me — while clipping coupons I found one for Lucky Leaf Cherry Pie filling and also this nice little recipe. It tastes so good with a cup of tea or glass of milk. We had a group of a lovely women here for a needlework retreat over the weekend and almost everyone asked for the recipe.

• ¼ cup sugar

• ½ cup butter, melted

• 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
