I've been making this dessert since I was a kid. In fact, my well-loved recipe card is written in my childhood writing style. Now my own kids are grown, and they call me for the recipe! It's quick and effortless, you can take it anywhere, and it dresses up nicely ;) I like to have leftovers for breakfast, warmed in the microwave with a little milk. (shhh, don't tell!)

    NOTES: Baking time varies a bit with the size and shape of the baking dish, I find. Don't be afraid to give it a little extra time in the oven if it needs it -- you don't want it gooey. This dessert reheats very well. Cherry is my favorite pie filling to use in this recipe, but others are also good -- experiment to find your favorite! *After becoming gluten intolerant we have substituted gluten free flour very successfully. **If you prefer, use milk and butter substitutes; depending on your filling choice, almond or coconut milk would be wonderful, and soy works well, too.
