Firehouse Cherry Crisp

This comes from Station 29's #2 Unit. Might be the easiest dessert ever which is right up my alley as I'm not all that great at desserts! :oops:

1 pkg. yellow cake mix

3 20 oz. cans of cherry pie filling (or whatecer you choose)

1 stick butter

Spread pie filling in 13"x9" pan. Empty contents of cake mix on top of filling and spread evenly. Dot with butter and bake according to the directions on the cake mix box. That's it! The crisp topping turns out MUCH better than one would expect! :D

OK, refresh my memory...a stick is 1 cup of butter? Thanks DC, this looks yummy. I wonder if it would be as yummy with blueberry pie filling? I have some leftover...I feel an experiment coming on.

Alix, I make this often for a quick dessert - we call it Cobbler for Dummies.

Blueberry pie filling works very nicely, as do fresh or frozen berries. With them you need to coat in a little flour and sugar first. Crushed pineapple is also an interesting choice. Our favorite is cherry pie filling as Charc indicates.

Before I tried it I thought that was too much as well but it's not. The "crisp" part turns out pretty thick so the three cans of filling is actually proportional! :)

20 oz. cans of pie filling were on sale at Kroger for a buck-fitty. It's a cost-effective dessert!
