A Mouthwatering 3 Ingredient Slow-Cooker Cherry Cobbler

Welcome to our fifth Thanksgiving related posts and cannot believe we are just a couple of days away from the main event! Remember, it is okay to feel excited, hungry, nervous, unorganized, or all of the above. The goal should always be to enjoy the moment with loved one and if you still feel unprepared, then we are here to help! So far we have reviewed the following:

  1. delicious cornbread stuffing 
  2. fancy and simple apple tart 
  3. savory brussels sprouts
  4. stylish table decor ideas

Today we will be using one essential kitchen tool, the crock pot! We had a couple of cans of cherry pie filling and found this simple cherry cobbler recipe on Tasty. Like in our prior food related Thanksgiving posts, we will provide the ingredients and directions below BUT with our own twist.


  • 2 cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 box cake mix
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil 

    vanilla ice cream (optional)

These are literally the 3 ingredients used in our crock pot


  1. Add the cherry pie filling, cake mix, and coconut oil to your slow cooker.
  2. Either cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
  3. Server a la mode with vanilla ice cream or your favorite whipped cream.
  4. Enjoy with friends and/or family!
Was very tempted to start eating some of the cherry filling


For being a three ingredient crock pot made dessert, it turned out really good! However, the next time I make this recipe I will use home made cherry pie filling. That way I can control the amount of sugar added in the filling and include addditional ingredients such as vanilla or lemon zest. If you are also interested in making your own, I would recommend trying out Jamie’s homemade cherry pie filling.
Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for our last two Thanksgiving related post coming out soon!

This was 1.5 hours on high yet and it smelled delicious! Still needed to wait another half hour prior to serving.
