Poor Man's Apple Cobbler

Have a dessert craving and not sure what to make? Try this super simple apple cobbler. Made with self-rising flour and canned pie filling, you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry. The pie filling is dolloped on top but the crust magically bakes around it. This comes out of the oven with a beautiful golden brown crust. You can use any fruit you'd like. We opted for apple but cherry or blueberry would be delicious too. If you like a lot of fruit, you can even add an extra can of filling to the cobbler. Serve with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious dessert.


  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 1 c self-rising flour
  • 1 can(s) pie filling (apple, cherry, or peach) or fresh fruit (21 oz)
  • 1 stick butter, unsalted
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
