Another great thing about have a Facebook page is all the submissions and ideas you get for using those jars of food that you have so painstakingly processed. Sherrie has come up with another great dessert recipe that is fast and easy to use any of the jars of pie filling.

This recipe works great with apple, cherry, blueberry, and any of the canned pie fillings you have in your pantry. Sherry said that she had made this for years with store bought filling but once she made her own it’s never been so good.

Thank you Sherrie for your continued support of my page and all the incredible recipes and pictures you share with me.
