They’re Coming Over TONIGHT?!?!?! Dessert

It’s 5pm and your hubby calls on his way home from work to let you know that he has invited a few people over to the house… tonight!  GACK!  In addition to the facts that A) you are still in your jammies, B) the house is covered in dust, fruit snacks, and matchbox cars, and C) you haven’t washed your hair in three days, YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO RUN TO THE GROCERY STORE!  What are you going to serve these people?!?

Maybe you haven’t ever been through this exact situation (although I hope I am not the only person who doesn’t bother changing out of her jammies on some days), I am sure you have had some time in your life when you realized that you needed to make something yummy… fast!
That’s where this delicious, and deliciously simple, dessert can save your PJ’d kiester.
To make Easy Fruit Cobbler, you will need:
2 cans of pie filling (any flavor)
1 box butter flavored cake mix
1 1/2 sticks of butter
Empty those two cans of pie filling into an ungreased 9×13.  If you use apple pie filling, you can mix a few teaspoons of cinnamon or apple pie spice in there too.  Just because you can.
Dump the cake mix right on top making sure it covers all the fruit.  Don’t be too picky though; remember that the bathroom needs to be cleaned yet.
Melt the butter in the microwave and pour the deliciousness all over the cake mix.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes while you hop in the shower (not literally).  Take it out of the oven when it’s all golden and purty.
Serve it warm and gooey with a dollop of Cool (h)Whip and a mug of coffee.

    I make this all the time, and it is FABULOUS! You also can make it with fresh or frozen fruit. My crew loves it made with frozen peaches.

    I have a feature at my blog called: Terrific Thrifty Thursday and it is along the same lines as your Feature Friday. I thought your dessert was smart and I sometimes feature a recipe. Can I use one of your photos in my Terrific Thrifty Thursday so I can show people what it looks like before they click on the link?~~Ponytails

    Do you think this would work just as well with the Country Crock Ready Sides Cinnamon Apples? I've got a few tubs on hand I need to do something with. I'll let ya know if it's a no go!
