Cobbler à la crock pot

I adore finding new and fun ways to use my crock pot.

If I can figure out how to convert a recipe, I’m going to try it out. Using my crock pot is less mess, less energy used and more time to do other things during my sometimes busy days. Plus some things just taste better when they are slow cooked.
 
 

here is my crock pot cobbler recipe.

be adventurous, try a new fruit in it. I’ve enjoyed every fruit combination I’ve tried…except blueberry. Blueberries don’t seem to like the slow cooker.
 
1 can of cherry or apple pie filling
1 can of pears or peaches (drained)
frozen fruit if desired
1 package (18 oz size) yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 serving sized package of instant oatmeal 

THE PREP:

Pour pie filling into slow cooker, spreading it out evenly.Add pears (or peaches) and frozen fruit.

Mix well.
Cover with the cake mix and the instant oatmeal.

Dice butter and sprinkle over the cake mix.

Place a paper towel over the top of the crock pot and place the lid on it. (the paper towel should be snug, it will collect the condensation and keep the cobbler from being mushy)

Set crock pot on LOW and cook for about 4 hours. Don’t use High, it makes the crust tough and hard.

The cobbler crust will be set, but soft.
 
Here’s a picture of my cobbler.
