Easiest Fruit Cobbler - EVER!

My mom made a delicious apple cobbler for my little brother's birthday. When I asked her for the recipe, she spilled her secret - it couldn't be any easier! She tells me this used to be a well known "secret" of moms everywhere, that for some reason appears to have been lost. I was so excited at how easy the recipe was, that I had to share it! Without further delay,

Easiest Fruit Cobbler
2 cans of pie filling, 21oz each
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter
chopped nuts, optional

Place filling in the bottom of your casserole dish.
Place cake mix over the pie filling. Add nuts if desired.

Drizzle melted butter over cake mix. Place in oven and cook 45 minutes at 350.
Pull the cobbler out and sit back in amazement at how fantastic it looks and smells while it cools!

As easy as this is, (if not low fat!) I love how versatile it is - you can use any type of pie filling, and I imagine you could play around with different cake mixes as well. I made an apple cobbler, because I had some pie filling left over from our last apple processing of the season. Next I plan to use my homemade blackberry filling. I see this becoming one of my go to tricks for providing a quick and easy homemade dessert to family and friends.
If you saw my fall list, you might have noticed the Make Apple Pumpkin Cobbler? I'm planning to use this basic recipe, with 1/2 apple and 1/2 pumpkin pie filling, I'll let you know how it turns out.
Do you have any super simple recipes like this? I'd love to hear your secrets!

My Scoutmaster husband makes this recipe in the dutch oven when we go camping! It is super simple. In fact, you don't even have to melt the butter. You can just slice it and scatter it around on top of the filling. You can also make it with canned fruit, instead of pie filling. Peaches are yummy!

Enjoy this fun discovery!
