Fruit cobblers in the Crock-pot!

I found this on, its a great site about crockpot cooking. These are great recipes using 3 months supply foodstorage, most ing. you probably already have in your pantry!

Crock Pot Recipes for easy Fruit Cobblers
Using your crockpot (slow cooker) for making delicious dessert recipes like fruit cobblers doesn't really cross many people's minds. Most people are thinking about dinner or appetizers, but your crockpot can be perfect for dessert recipes too!

Cherry Biscuit Cobbler

2 packages (8 ounces each) refrigerator biscuits (seperated and cut into quarters)

1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling*

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

*your choice of fruit filling can be used for cobbler

Mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter in a small bowl. Mixture will be lumpy. Grease a 3 1/2 to 5 quart crockpot, then layer 1 package biscuits, half the cinnamon mixture, and then half the pie filling. Add the second package of the biscuits: cover with the remaining half of the cinnamon mixture, and top with the remaining half of the pie filling. Cover and cook on high heat 2 1/2 - 3 hours, or until biscuits are done in the center. Recipe makes 6-8 servings.

This fruit cobbler tastes fabulous with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream!

As tasty as the above cobbler recipe is, maybe you don't have the time for preparing it. Not to worry! Here is another recipe for a crockpot cobbler that you can fix in a flash! Again, the main ingredients are going to something you probably have in the kitchen pantry.

Peach Crockpot Cobbler

2 cans (21 ounces each) peach pie filling (or your favorite fruit)

1 package (18 ounces) yellow or white cake mix

1/2 cup melted butter or margarine

Spread pie filling in the bottom of greased 4 1/2 to 6 quart crockpot. Sprinkle dry cake mix over the top. Pour melted butter over the top of cake mix, trying to coat evenly. Cover and cook cobbler on high heat 2 hours, or on low heat 4 hours.
Recipe makes 10-12 servings. Serve cobbler with vanilla ice cream, or whipped topping.

Or, for a slightly more "crisp" cobbler.....
