Favorite Easy Dessert

This is a great dessert that is so easy and quick to make. It's my go-to dessert when I get that dreaded call: "Corrie we're having potluck, can you bring a dessert.........tomorrow?"  Or sometimes, if they only give me 2hrs to make something, they will end up with store bought cookies. Bwahaha!

This dessert always gets good reviews. The key is to not say the real name of the dessert. It immediately turns people off. Since I have renamed this wonderful creation, it is a favorite of everyone I know.

So here is Pineapple Cherry Cobbler (formerly known as Cherry Dump Cake-because you dump everything into a pan and bake.......still doesn't make that horrid name any better....)

2 cans cherry pie filling
2 medium cans crushed pineapple (undrained)
2 sticks margarine
1 box yellow cake mix
crushed pecans (optional)

Mix pie filling and pineapple. Pour in extra large Pyrex dish. Sprinkle dry cake mix over this. Scatter margarine pieces over cake mix. Sprinkle crushed pecans over top and bake at 350 degrees until brown.

You can substitute pineapple and cherry for 2 cans of apple pie filling to make a great Apple Cobbler.
