Quick Dessert Cake

On a recent week night, after eating dinner, we decided we wanted something sweet. Something that was really dessert, but didn’t take a long time to put together. We had a movie to watch and we wanted to get to it.

Not only did it, indeed, sound very quick, but it used canned pie filling – of which I have several I need to use up (how is it that I have several, I ask you? I never use them! Why did I buy them? I don’t understand). So, Quick Dessert Cake it was!
