This creative slow-cooker recipe takes advantage of several shortcut ingredients, including muffin mix and canned cherry pie filling, for a simple cozy dessert with very little effort.




  • Lightly coat the inside of a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In the prepared cooker combine frozen mixed berries, pie filling, cinnamon and ginger.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting (do not use high-heat setting) for 2 hours.

  • In a medium bowl, combine muffin mix, the water, pecans and oil; stir just until combined. Spoon muffin mixture over berry mixture. Turn to high-heat setting. Cover and cook about 1 hour more or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin mixture comes out clean.

  • Turn off cooker. If possible, remove crockery liner from cooker and place on wire rack. Cool, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

  • To serve, spoon warm cobbler into dessert dishes. If you like, serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
