Excellent recipe! My husband and I both LOVED it! As usual I did have to make a few changes. Since I had no jarred applesauce (I usually make my own) I quickly peeled cored and chunked 3 Granny Smiths and cooked them on low for l5 mins. with 3 Tab. white sugar & a dash of lemon juice (tender stage) and "smashed" them a little but did leave small chunks for extra flavor. This made a perfect substitute! My only canned peaches were sweetened with Splenda and they worked fine. I did cut each slice into 3rds(fits into the mouth better). Could not locate 8 oz. can of pineapple chunks in my grocery store so used tidbits instead and they worked fine. I had a can of "lite" apple pie filling in my pantry (impulse buy) that needed to be used so I tossed that in. The end result had a wonderful texture and taste! Next time I will probably add a can of pear halves drained and chunked. This would make a beautiful presentation at a holiday meal because it is so colorful! It does make a lot (almost filled up my 13x9 dish) but you can enjoy it in a variety of ways. I warmed it and served it with teacakes as dessert ate it as a side dish and will serve it over pound cake slices with whipped topping for dessert tonight. Also it will be wonderful with vanilla ice cream. A delicious and versatile dish! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Yuck! This was like school cafeteria leftovers gone bad! The mix of canned fillings applesauce etc then served warm just tasted terrible--like having warm jello or something. I cannot believe I tried this recipe. I served it to me my hubby and 2 not-so-picky nephews. Terrible. Sorry. Read More

This recipe is excellent; however my sister-in-law is a celiac and cannot have glutens which are found in the pie filling. Simply use maraschino cherries. Drain the cherries and add to the fruit reserving the liquid. Add 1 tablespoon corn starch to the drained liquid mixing well and add to the fruit for thickening. Read More

This is a GREAT potluck recipe to bring somewhere. I took it to my Mom's Club (about 50 moms) and it was a big success. Everyone was asking for the recipe. I am not sure why anyone wouldn't like it. It tastes exactly like a wonderful warm fruit pie without the crust. It is also actually pretty healthy! (Well there is some sugar due to the canned fruit). The only thing I added was canned pears because I thought it would make a nice addition the other fruits. I really loved this recipe and would make again! I think it would go great over pancakes! If you are looking for a really unique recipe with great flavor try taking this to your next outing! Read More

I tried this recipe for our church potluck and it was a hit! I put it together at home and plugged in the crockpot and let it cook during the service...couldn't have been easier. Next time I need to double the recipe so we don't run out. Read More
