Okay, so this is the easiest things ever-ever-ever.
My mom brought over the first one. She pretty much invented it! Thanks mom!
you need 3 ingredients.
Thats it. Well, if you can find Tiramisu flavored mascarpone. I suppose another flavor might work too. But these come together in seconds and are way too good to eat just one.
Then there is dessert #2, for those times when you want to turn on the oven and pull out a warm and wonderful dessert with no fuss whatsoever.
(I figured since these dessert posts would be so small, we would lump them together.)
First, let me entice you with a photo. I know I am not a prime photographer and this was probably taken with my phone, but still…
You could say this one beats the first one because it really only has 2 ingredients. In that you only have to buy 2 things. But actually there are different components.
1 can of cherry pie filling
1 can of cinnamon rolls in refrigerator section with cream cheese icing.
In the bottom of your Rockcrok, melt about 1 Tbsp of butter. (Not essential, but I do it, or melt in a prep bowl and pour in). You don’t have a Rockcrok? Good grief, get one! Host a Pampered Chef party and get one on the cheap.
But okay, you can use other kinds of baking dishes, preferably stoneware ones. Something you can invert. Metal baking pans would be my last choice. Any ceramic baking dishes? Glass ones? Metal pans get so hot, too hot. They burn things. Like the cherry syrup or your fingers.
Pour the pie filling over the melted butter.
Break out the cinnamon rolls and cut each one into fourths. Drop those over the cherry pie filling and put into a 350 degree oven.
Bake until the tops are golden brown, about 20 minutes give or take.
Let sit 5 minutes. Put a large plate or platter over the top and CAREFULLY invert. Then CAREFULLY remove the pan. Watch that the escaping steam does not burn your delicate arms, leaving red scald marks. (Ask me how I know.)
Melt the cream cheese icing in a prep bowl or measuring cup and pour over the cherries.
Thats it. Serve it up. Someone in the Pampered Chef circles started making this with regular canned dinner rolls, but I figured if we are doing dessert, lets DO dessert and go for cinnamon rolls!
So, cinnamon rolls, cherry pie filling, icing.
You could always buy cream cheese frosting and melt that. Or configure your own cream cheese icing, with homemade sweet dough, like monkey bread dough….
Hmmm. How would that work? Cherry pie filling (made with Trader Joes jar of cherries, thickened with sugar and corn starch), sweet dough pieces dipped in butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar, layered over the pie filling. Bake…hmmm. Would it work? Sure, if I really feel like going to all that trouble. It would be missing the ‘easy’ factor though. What would that be called? Cherry monkey bread? Monkey cherry cobbler? It would need a cool name. Help me here.
Have a wonderful day or evening, whichever applies. You can’t have both;)
