My daughter, Kris, and I won first place in a dessert contest using her Dad's recipe.* I've received many requests for the recipe, so it has the honor of being the first post on the new cooking blog.
We like to cook when we camp (our camping is fur-trade era reenacing). My husband, Bearded Eagle, cooks this desert in an iron dutch oven using hot coals. It really does taste better that way. If you do try it in a dutch oven, we have recently discovered that a double batch works great.
For this blog, I'll give you the "kitchen equipped with gas oven" version. :-)
1. 1 can of pie filling
We usually use cherry, but you can use whatever you like.
If you find a particularly good combination, please let me know in the comments.
