Easy/Fast Cherry Cobbler "a la mode"

Doesn't this look yummy?????? It tastes
even better & it's the easiest, fastest dessert
to do. We went to a dinner party at some
friends house tonite and this is what I brought.

They had us make individual pizzas, with a
huge assortment of toppings and our
great host/chef barbecued them in his wonderful
outdoor Bar-B-Q pit/grill restaurant type patio
(which he built himself I might add)
He & his wife are amazing and their food
absolutely delicious. That was probably the
BEST pizza I've ever had.....Wow!

Anyway sorry about digressing....This Cherry
Cobbler topped with vanilla bean ice cream
(and it could be apple or just about any
type of fruit probably) recipe came from a
dear friends mother.
It only has 3 ingredients to boot.....


1 reg. size can Comstock pie filling (cherry
or apple)
1/2 box of white or yellow cake mix
1/2 c. butter (1 cube) melted

In a 8"x8" square pan (that has been buttered or
sprayed with Pam) pour the can of pie filling into

Sprinkle 1/2 the box of cake mix evenly over the
pie filling.

Pour approx. 1/2 c. (1 whole cube) of melted
butter as evenly as possible over the cake
mix (I used a Tblsp to make it easier)

Bake @ 350F. for 25min.
This is how it looked after coming out of the oven.
Add the "a la mode" ice cream and that's it......

NOTE: (I made some changes for this recipe)
**********I used a 11 x 7 1/2" glass pan because I
knew I needed more servings than an 8x8 would
**********I used a large can (30 oz.) of Pie filling
and all of the cake mix (I didn't want any left
**********I used the same amount of melted
butter as the recipe
