This is a sweet, fruity and delicious dessert which is easy to make and tastes wonderful with ice cream or whipped topping.
Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:40 mins
Total Time:50 mins
Servings:8 slices


For the fruit filling:

  • 3 apples preferably 1.5lb Granny Smith apples
  • 30 ounces cherry pie filling

For the topping:

  • ½ cup quick oats or old-fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cup brown sugar
  • cup unsalted butter or margarine


To make the fruit filling:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and pour the cherry pie filling into a square baking pan. Set it aside.
  • Peel, core, and slice both apples, and then cut the slices into quarters.
  • Now mix the apples into the pie filling and set aside.

To make the topping:

  • Mix flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Place butter in the microwave for 1 minute or until melted. Then add the melted butter into the flour mixture and mix well.
  • Spread the topping over the fruit filling evenly and then bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!


  • Not a fan of cherries? You can sub strawberry pie filling instead.
  • The topping sometimes gets soggy after reheating. If this happens you can broil it for a couple of minutes to crisp it back up.
  • Use tart green apples in this recipe. Sweet red apples become dry and mealy when cooked.
