.It’s been a grey sort of day, one of those fall days where the wind and the sky let you know that it truly IS about to be winter. On days like these, if I can’t just curl up in a blanket
for a nap with a good book, then I bake. The oven warms the house, and just smelling fresh baked goods makes everyone feel cheery and well…warmer. I received a lovely box of pie fillings from Lucky Leaf, last week, to get me all stirred up and inspired for holiday baking. I loved their theme for this campaign, “Good Things Come to Those Who Bake”.
Anyway, today being the perfect day to bake something delicious, I tested out a recipe for Blueberry Crisp with Pecans. It’s the easy, can-throw-it-together-in-five-minutes-if-unexpected-company-shows-up, kind of baking. But, go for it anyway, they will never have to know that. Really. My lips are sealed!
Mmmm hmmm … and now, here’s how easy it is for you to make it for your very own, “singin’-the-blues-’cause-it’s-cold-and-dreary-and-grey” family. You’re getting BIG mom points for this one!
- 2 (21 oz) cans Lucky Leaf Premium Blueberry Pie Filling
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- Thoroughly grease a 9x13 baking pan.
- Pour both cans of blueberry pie filling into the baking pan and spread evenly.
- Sprinkle blueberries with brown sugar and then cinnamon.
- Layer the dry cake mix, and then the pecans, over the top of the blueberries, brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Drizzle melted butter over the whole thing.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. The blueberry sauce will be bubbly and the batter will have set and browned.
- Serve plain...
- or even better, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
