This recipe comes from one of my cookbooks, Worth Tasting by Junior League of the Palm Beaches.
It reminds me of a dump cake, which we all love here in this house. Grace’s wishes I would just make the topping from dump cake…she says “It is Heaven on Earth”. So, I had to try it. It is pretty darn good. A scoop of ice cream would a tasty addition, but totally not needed. It is like you have dump cake topping on the bottom and the top! Yum! I really think you could use any kind of pie filling….cherry would be awesome 🙂
Apple Pie Crisp
- 1 (2 layer) package yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 2 (21 oz.) cans apple pie filling
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened (This is important)
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 (2 layer) package butter recipe cake mix
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Combine the yellow cake mix, 1/2 cup butter and 1 egg; mix well. Press over the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Combine the pie filling, cream cheese and 3 eggs; mix well. Spread the pie filling over the yellow cake mix layer. Sprinkle with butter recipe cake mix and drizzle with 1/2 butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown.
Note: I Sprinkled some cinnamon on the apple layer and added pecans to the top.
Tomorrow is the Lion’s Chicken Dinner. Each member is asked to bring 2 pies and a cake. We always bring Oatmeal Pie and usually brownies. I decided to give this a try…so glad I did.
I have to confess, I had to try a piece. I had to make sure it was good to serve at the Lions Chicken Dinner! After I got the piece out….I started eating it and forgot to take the photo. I do not think Mark would be happy for me to take out another piece…so I kind of patched this one up. That is why the photo is not so great 😉
Stop by the Lions Chicken dinner tomorrow at the KC Hall in Breese and there might be a piece left!
Announcing my first give away! I am thankful for all you who are following my blog. So, in return I am having a give away.
With Fat Tuesday around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to give away a cookbook called Who’s your Mama, Are you Catholic and Can you make a Roux? The name of the book make me chuckle. I guess those are common questions to ask a newcomer in Cajun country! The cookbook contains lots of Cajun/creole recipes and interesting stories.
Here is the deal… you need to post a comment to this post and answer this question Of all of your recipes, which one do you consider your best “Fat Tuesday” recipe? You know…the one with cream, butter, pasta, sugar etc. You do not have to share the whole recipe, just the title will be good. You might get some requests for the recipe, so be prepared 🙂 If you post a comment, you will get to double your chances if you have already subscribed to my blog or subscribe before the deadline. The deadline is Monday, March 7th, Noon Central Time. I am going to use random.org that will randomly choose the winner. I will announce the winner on my next post and also contact you via email.
