A friend of mine gave me lots of individual pouches of pie filling in various flavors and I was looking for a recipe for anything but pies that I could use this in (I will also post on the recipe board) so as not to waste it...always try to be budget conscious and I have learned so much on these boards...thanks in advance!

I have a super easy coffee cake recipe for pie filing. I will look it up when I get home and post it. It's 1 thing of pie filing, 1 yellow cake mix, and some crumble topping. I don't like to cook or bake- so it has to be easy and it is.

I use apple pie filling in my bread pudding recipe.


10 pcs bread, cut into cubes

Mix together:
1 1/2 c. milk
1 c. sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs

put bread in clow cooker, cover with milk mixture, stir until all pcs of bread are covered.

add 1 to 1 1/2 cans of apple pie filling (I suppose you could use other flavors)
mix in gently.

cook on low for 3 hours.

serve with whipped cream or your favorite lemon sauce

enjoy!

(you can also add raisins, if you like).

good luck!

Here is an awesome one. Brown 4 - 5 pork chops in skillet. Place them in a baking dish (I put 4 in a 8X8 pyrex pan). Put one can of apple pie filling on top. Then, prepare Stove top stuffing, put on top of the apples and pork chops. Heat in a 350 oven for 50 minutes. Enjoy. It is INCREDIBLE!! Let me know if you make it and if you enjoy it! :thumbsup2

I was going to suggest the same thing, but with cherry filling!

DUMP CAKE

1. Dump two cans of pie filling (any flavor) into tinfoiled & greased cake pan or dutch oven.
2. Dump 1 box cake mix over the top (any flavor). DO NOT STIR!!, just break up big lumps and smooth out.
3. Dump 1 can of soda (any flavor) over the top. DO NOT STIR!!

Cook at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Can be made in the oven at home, or use a dutch oven over a campfire. Kids love to make this recipe!

Our personal favorite - cherry pie filling, yellow cake (white is too sweet), & Cherry Coke.

CHERRY BROWNIES
1. Make your favorite brownie mix. Decrease the liquid/oil and instead add one can of cherry pie filling.

DUMP CAKE A little different than other one

1 can apple pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple (drained)
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick margarine

In a 9x13 pan pour pie filling and pineapple, spread evenly.
Pour cake mix on top, spread evenly
Cut stick of butter into 20 slices and lay evnely spaced on cake mix.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until slightly browned.

Similar to the others, but w/ blueberry...

in a 9x13 pan, first layer blueberry pie filling. Then layer 1 lrg can of crushed pinapple (drained, but reserve the juice). Then layer 1 yellow cake mix. Next, 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Finally, melt 1/2 stick butter (recipe calls for 1 stick but I use less & I also use lowfat margarine). Mix melted butter w/ reserved pineapple juice & pour over the top. Bake @ 350 degrees for 50 minutes. YUMMY!

You can also do this w/ cherry, but we love the blueberry more.

fake cobbler:

1 box yellow cake mix
any flavor pie filling (I use 2 cans)
1 stick margarine

In 9 x 13 pan:
Put pie filling in pan.
Pour dry cake mix on top.
Slice one stick of margarine or butter on top of cake mix.
Bake at 350 for about 25 min.

I love cherry, I have also had apple. I am sure any flavor is good.

CHERRY BROWNIES
1. Make your favorite brownie mix. Decrease the liquid/oil and instead add one can of cherry pie filling.

That was a Pillsbury bake off winner (or runner up) years ago. Add a little almond extract if you have it.

I just love when there is a recipe thread! So many great ideas and these all look so good & easy, too! I'm going to try the pork chop/apple/stuffing recipe & the blueberry Dump cake recipe when we get back from WDW!

Thanks all!;)

Thanks guys! The dump cake sounds delicious and easy and the pork chop recipe sounds great also--don't know if I could get my picky eater to try this but DH and I certainly will. Thanks again.

That was a Pillsbury bake off winner (or runner up) years ago. Add a little almond extract if you have it.

My Pillsbury bake-off recipe calls for a cake mix, instead of a brownie mix. This is my DH's favorite cake. I have tried making this with a brownie mix and the texture was very odd. Well, here's my recipe, along with a couple more:

Chocolate Cherry Fudge Brownies
1 pkg devil's food cake mix
21 oz can cherry pie filling
1 tsp. almond extract
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9 x 13" pan. Combine ingredients in large bowl. Stir by hand until well mixed. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

For the frosting: While cake cools, in a small saucepan melt 1 C. sugar, 5 T. butter and 1/2 C milk; bring to a boil and boil rapindly for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add 1/2 of a 12 oz. pkg of chocolate chips to the boiling mixture and stir until smooth. Pour hot frosting over cake and spread.

Cherry Rhubarb Freezer Jam
7 C. cut-up rhubarb
4 C sugar (note: I have used 3 C with success)
1 can cherry pie filling
2 3oz. pkgs cherry jello

Combine rhubarb and sugar; let stand for 4 hours or overnight. Boil for 10 minutes. Add cherry pie filling and boil for 1 more minute. Stir in jello until dissolved. Cool slightly. Process small batches in the blender, until smooth. Transfer to jars. Let cool to room temperature. Put lids on. Freeze.

You can use this basic recipe and mix up the pie filling and jello flavors. For example: blueberry pie filling and black raspberry jello, or peach pie filling and peach jello.

Cherry Macaroon Parfaits
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
3 C. cold milk
1 can cherry pie filling
1/4 tsp. almond extract
6 macaroon cookies, crumbled
Whipped cream

Prepare pudding with milk. Combine pie filling with almond extract. Alternate layers of pudding, cookies, and pie filling in 6'' parfait glasses (clear plastic cups work well too). Top with whipped cream.

Oh, if you have any lemon pie filling, here is one more easy recipe:

Lemon Bars
1 pkg. lemon cake mix
3 eggs
1 can lemon pie filling

Mix all of the ingredients together and bake in a jelly roll pan at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

My Mom makes a great fruit salad. All you need to do is combine whatever fruit you want - we usually use grapes, strawberries, blueberries, etc - then mix all the fruit with a can of peach pie filling. The pie filling puts a light glaze over all the fruit, and it is really good. This recipe is easy, and great for these hot summer days.

Oh, this brings back childhood memories for me! My grandmother used to make this, but with apricot pie filling. It is so good! I haven't had this for years, and you have inspired me to make this. I will try it with peach pie filling as you suggest.

Cherry (or Apple) Glop

1 Package Pie Filling in bottom of 8x8 pan.

Mix 1 white cake mix with 1 stick melted butter. It will end up as crumbles. Top pie filling with with cake mix.

Bake at 350 until top is browned.

It is very good (even though the name sounds yucky).

Try cherry pie filling instead of apple with the pineapple. I dislike cherries but love this! People are impressed that even "LISA" can bake something (then they realize how incredibly easy it is) I also add some chopped walnuts to the top and melt the butter and drizzle it on rather than using slices.

We make a fruit salad similiar to the one above...

1 container of frozen strawberries, thawed
1 can peach pie filling
1 can chunk pineapple
2 bananas

Mix first three. Then right before serving, slice the bananas and stir in. So good with that Christmas ham!!

Wow! This is the first variation on Strawberry Pretzel Dessert that I have ever seen. Usually the top is strawberry jello made with frozen strawberries and is a favorite at our house. This sounds great too! ::yes:: More like a cheesecake with a pretzel crust. Yummy. :)

I'm definitely going to try the pork chop recipe. Now, I just need to decide whether to use apple or cherry pie filling. :scratchin

The tortilla dessert has found it's way onto this week's menu also. :teeth: I'm making quesadillas tomorrow night, & they will be perfect for dessert.

The different varieties of dump cake sound good as well. Does anyone put frosting on them? I'm not sure my family would eat a cake w/o frosting. I can give it a try though.

blanq,
I definitely want to make the lemon bars, but I don't think I have a jelly roll pan. Unless, it's in there & just hasn't been used in a very long time. :blush: Is there anything else I can use? TIA :)

This cake bakes up kind of like a coffee cake, so I don't think that frosting would work well on this. A dollop of Cool Whip might work though. :)

We use it on waffles (heated).

We also have a little sandwich maker. If you buy white bread, lightly butter it, fill with pie filling, grill (and it will seal shut) and then put a little powdered sugar on top.....it is just like a turnover! Very easy, cheap and the kids love it.

I always make it with cherries, too. And nuts on top are a must. Served warm with vanilla ice cream, it is amazing.

No frosting needed! It isn't really a cake, it is more like a cobbler. The cake mix turns into something like a crumb topping. IMPORTANT TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT THE CAKE MIX GOES ON DRY--STRAIGHT FROM THE BOX! This is why it is called DUMP cake--you just open and dump all the ingredients in (except for the butter--I don't like margarine--you melt that first.)

Here's 2 more...

1) I have a quesadilla maker and the recipe book it came with suggested filling with apple pie filling before grilling - yum! (and easy!) <edit> Let me clarify, ONLY pie filling goes in the tortillas (not chicken and cheese - yuk for dessert!) :lmao:

2) On Semi-Homemade (cooking channel show), Sandy filled a store-bought angel food cake center with pie filling, and then frosting the entire thing with cool-whip topping. I've made this several times - SO EASY and people love it! :cloud9:

Since I'm from NE and I love apple picking time I usually use apple pie filling with walnuts, but I suppose any pie filling would work.

Simply make french toast, top with pie filling (perhaps add nut of your choice) bake for about 10 mins. Yummy! Now I can't wait for Apple picking season to begin. ;)

Hi tarheelmjfan! We haven't run into each other in awhile, since we corresponded a bit last summer before our Alaska cruises. If you have some time, PM me, as I would love to hear how you liked your cruise!

Making this recipe without a jelly roll pan should not be a problem. I would just substitute a 9"x13" pan. Obviously this will mean that the bars are thicker, and you'll need to cook them a bit longer, but they should turn our fine. I can't tell you how long to bake, but I would just bake until the center is done (check with a toothpick).

Then, prepare Stove top stuffing, put on top of the apples and pork chops. Heat in a 350 oven for 50 minutes. Enjoy. It is INCREDIBLE!! Let me know if you make it and if you enjoy it! :thumbsup2
I made this last night. :thumbsup2

I had a recipe without the apple pie filling, in which you brown the pork chops & set them aside. Then deglaze the pan using apple juice. (Deglazing is scraping & stirring up the browned bits of meat & drippings in the pan with a liquid, to be used for a gravy.) Add enough apple juice (in place of water) to make the stuffing mix. Then add the pork chops back in, cover the skillet and heat gently until the chops are done.

The apple juice a & drippings really add flavor & zing to the stuffing and unify all the flavors. However, I never thought to add the apple pie filling, which it really needs. :cool1: It definitely put the recipe over the top last night! :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

It is definitely a keeper. :love: I added cinnamon to the apple filling & next time will add some re-plumped up raisins & maybe chopped walnuts. Yum! :) However, I will continue to keep the stuffing on the bottom so the juices from the pork chops, as they continue to cook, will keep flavoring the stuffing. :cheer2: (I also added a couple of tablespoons of the pie filling directly into the stuffing mix while preparing it, also to unify the flavors while cooking.)

I'm sure the pie filling, stuffing & pork chops can be adapted for chicken instead, too. I think I will try that next. Maybe use peach pie filling and orange juice with chicken.:cheer2:


OP, thanks for this thread. I've been looking for jarred/canned apples to make a quick & easy, warm compote or apple crisp, but didn't know where to look. I kept looking in the jams/preserves section & in the canned fruit section, but there just wasn't any canned apples :confused3 other than apple sauce. I didn't know I should be looking for apple pie filling.

After a while, pork chops with apple sauce just doesn't hit the spot when I wanted actual chunks of apples. Peeling, cutting, coring& cooking and apple to make a small compote or crisp was too much work. Now I can just open a can and add the extras! :cool1:

We also use Cherry for Dump Cake. My recipe is a little different.

Cherry Pie filling
Crushed Pineapple undrained
Yellow cake mix
3/4 cup butter chopped
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Place in the order listed in large greased pan. Bake at 325 for 1 hour.

YUM!

I found a few more variations of dump cakes:

Large can of pears, with the juice, and dump it into a greased cake pan. Sprinkle a package of blueberry muffin mix over the top. Slice up 3 - 4 Tbsp of butter and dot top of cake mix and bake at about 400 until it's bubbly and the top is browned. SOOOO delicious. (This first one was published in Taste of Home's Quick Cooking a while back.)

Variations:
Pour One large can of peach pie filling in a 9x13 cake pan, sprinkle one spice cake mix over the top, dot with butter and bake.

OR:
2 cans Apple Pie Filling
1 (18 oz) Duncan Hines Caramel Cake Mix
1 stick of butter or margarine (cut into pats or melted)

Dump pie filling into a 9"x13" baking pan. Dump cake mix evenly over pie filling. Dot top with pats of butter or pour melted butter over mix. Place in 350 degree oven and bake 35 or so minutes. The top will be golden brown and bubbly.

OR:
This is a WW recipe. Mix a 15 oz-ish can of pumpkin and a box of spice cake mix and an egg or two egg whites if you want to cut the fat even more. The egg/egg white helps it rise like a normal cake. Put in greased non-stick muffin pan, bake according to cake package. Yummy!

A friend of mine gave me lots of individual pouches of pie filling in various flavors and I was looking for a recipe for anything but pies that I could use this in (I will also post on the recipe board) so as not to waste it...always try to be budget conscious and I have learned so much on these boards...thanks in advance!

I have never seen "packets" of pie filling--only cans. I wonder if packets are a regional thing...

Great thread, BTW!

I used to make a recipe that my mom had handed down to me but I hadn't been able to find the recipe in years....uses pie filling...I was cleaning out a box on my patio this weekend and I found the recipe! So here it is!

Cherry Easy Time Squares

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) margarine
4 eggs
2 cups flour
1 Tbls. lemon extract (or use your favorite)
1 can of favorite pie filling

Beat sugar and margarine. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour and flavoring.

Spread into a greased 13 x 9 pan. Make an indentation on the top of the mixture to make 20 squares and put a spoonful of the pie filling in the middle of each square.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar over the entire top. The pie filling actually sinks in the middle of the square.
