Three Ingredient Cherry Cobbler
One of my kids told me he had a craving for cherry pie. Lucky for him, I know a quick and simple way to make something similar in taste to cherry pie put with only a fraction of the effort. This recipe uses a cake mix to help make it quick and easy. I had all three ingredients at home. And you probably do too! I've made a very similar recipe in the past. Take a look at my three ingredient peach cobbler.

I used a 9 x 13 casserole dish and thought it was a perfect size.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray your casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Dump the cherries into the casserole dish.
I challenge you not to try one of these cherries! Of course, you need to taste test : ).
Slice stick of butter into thin slices. Actually, thinner than what I'm showing. My butter was a little too warm to get thinner slices. The more slices you have, the better your topping is!
Look at the end result below! Yummm. I will confess that because I didn't cut enough slices, there were a couple of dry spots. I gave the top a quick spray with no-stick spray and it made everything nice and brown and yummy looking.
Here's the finished dessert! It tastes sooooo good! If you like cherry pie, this is the easiest way to get all the taste and flavor or cherry pie but no fuss. I've never been good at making pie crust. This is so much easier and just as tasty! Of course, a little scoop of ice cream adds to the deliciousness!

- Category: dessert
2 cans (21 oz each) pie cherries
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray 9 x 13 casserole dish with no-stick spray.
Dump two cans of canned cherries into casserole dish.
Dump cake mix evenly over the cherries
Thinly slice one stick of butter. The more slices, the better! Spread them on top of the cake mix.
DO NOT STIR.
Bake for 30-40 minutes. Watch for the color to be a delicious golden color.
If you notice at 30 minutes that there is dry, cake mix, take it out of the oven and spray a bit of non-stick spray on the dry parts. Put it back in the oven for a few minutes.
If you slice the butter thin enough, you should not have any dry cake mix once this is baked.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream is always delicious on any baked good!
