- ½ stick butter
- canned pie filling
- 1 box powdered pancake and baking mix
- 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 quart milk
- Place Dutch Oven over medium heat and melt butter. Distribute it evenly over bottom and halfway up sides of Dutch Oven.
- Add 1 cup of brown sugar and about 1 cup of water.
- Place Dutch Oven over medium heat and bring to boil stirring frequently. Do not let it burn.
- Mix up batter with the baking mix and milk following the directions on the box for making dumplings, but add in ⅓ cup packed brown sugar.
- Pour canned pie filling into Dutch Oven, add ¼ cup water and bring to low boil, stirring frequently.
- Spoon this loose dough on to the top of the simmering fruit filling. Don’t worry if it looks sparse, it will expand as it bakes.
- Place cover on Dutch Oven.
- Shovel a pile of glowing coals from the campfire to a safe location on the ground. It should be a single layer and about 8 inches across.
- Set Dutch Oven to straddle these coals.
- Shovel a single layer of coals to cover Dutch Oven Lid.
- Allow it to cook about 15 minutes, then move the Dutch Oven away from bottom pile of coals.
- Using a lid lifter carefully peak inside. You’re looking for the top of the cobbler to be a nice, golden brown.
- Scrape away half the bottom coals and place Dutch Oven over remainder.
- Check every 5 minutes or so until top reaches the color you want.
- Serve the cobbler by itself or top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I am very satisfied with the support I received from Pat and his quick (and clearly explained) solution to our problem! I told my husband that we need to renew our membership after our 1 year warranty expires.”
