My oldest daughter played basketball for about 8 years. The girls on the team were like my own children. I feel like I have kids of every race out there. I love it! They all call me mom :). "Raspberry" Crunch became the preferred dessert of the high school basketball team. So much so that it was hijacked one year by the varsity girls during a potluck team dinner. I had it on the table with all the other desserts that were brought but the girls took the whole thing to their table, along with a dozen spoons and were eating it straight out of the pan!! Talk about a compliment!! Most of these girls have graduated and are off to college but when I talk to them, they always request some. One of the girls came home for the weekend and has been bugging me for over a month for Raspberry Crunch but I couldn't find any raspberry pie filling in the store so this time I used blueberries. She came over for lunch today and it's half gone already.
If you want to make your kids smile, make this simple dessert for them.
1 package of while deluxe cake mix (I've used yellow before and it was just fine)
1 can of cherry pie filling (or raspberry or blueberry or what ever your favorite pie filling happens to be)
1 tsp lemon juice (of course fresh is best)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I usually use pecans)
1/2 cup melted butter
Spread the pie filling in the bottom of a 9' square pan. Sprinkle the filling with the lemon juice. Combine the cake mix, nuts and melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over the pie filling. Bake in a preheated 350' oven for about 40-50 minutes, until golden brown. ENJOY!!!
