I really didn't plan ahead much and just "went with it" more than usual. Saturday I baked an especially quick and easy desert. It is a combination of store bought pie filling with additional fresh or frozen fruit added plus a little jazz up with a bit of extra butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Basically I used a can of apple pie filling and added a couple of peeled and sliced cooking apples plus an additional tablespoon of butter, three tablespoons of sugar(to taste), and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
I baked them 22 minutes at 350 degrees F. It is quite nice to top with whipped cream or ice cream.
I first thought this up when my husband headed up the local cowboy shooters at our local gun club and I often prepared lunches for 75 hungry cowboy shooters!! So if you have a crowd to feed you can use big disposable aluminum pans and mix up big batches. I just bake them until the fruit is bubbling around the edges and the cookies are brown, You can use any fruit you like and I always added frozen fruit for the cowboy shoots and topped it with a ready made whipped topping from the freezer section of the grocery. I just thought I would share some of my tips for cooking for a crowd.
