I love having friends over, especially this time of year.  We are not every night dessert people, but whenever I have guests over for dinner I like to round out the night with a pot of strong coffee and something sweet to eat.But the truth is that I am not a good baker.  Measuring and weighing ingredients come dangerously close to math, and math never ends well for me.

To reconcile these two issues, I have an arsenal of desserts that rely heavily on store-bought products like cake mix and pie filling.  I have shared my Pumpkin Cobbler and Easy Fruit Cobbler recipes before.If you are looking for an easy, delicious dessert to share with friends over some coffee and conversation, you can also try this Cherry-Strawberry Crumble recipe.


Although strawberry isn’t a flavor you necessarily associate with Christmas, the gorgeous red color of the cherry and strawberry pie fillings certainly is.  And when something tastes this yummy, you won’t care whether it is seasonally-appropriate or not‘

One box of Duncan Hines butter –flavor cake mix
1 1/4 cups oats
1/2 cup butter, cut into tablespoon-sized pieces
1 egg
1/2 cup pecans (optional)
One 21 ounce can of Comstock cherry pie filling
One 21 ounce can of Comstock strawberry pie filling

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 pan.
Mix together cake mix, oats and 6 T. of butter until crumbly.  Measure out 1 cup of the mixture and set aside.
Blend egg into the crumble mixture and press into the bottom of the 9×13.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
After the crust is done baking, pour the two cans of pie filling over the top of the crust.
Add remaining 2 T. of butter and nuts to the reserved cup of crumble mixture.  Sprinkle evenly over the top of the pie filling.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
