Rose Pie

Happy Easter!!! This is the day that we celebrate Jesus rising from the dead. On Friday, He submitted to death, though He had done nothing deserving of that, so that He could be the perfect sacrifice...paying the debt for ALL of our sins, if we just trust in Him for forgiveness. But it did not end in Death, He defeated death and rose from the grave, body and soul, and now lives forever at the right hand of God! I pray that you know the joy of His salvation and the peace that it brings.
My family was here for the weekend and we had Easter lunch at my apartment. Mama made ham and I cooked some squash, asparagus, deviled eggs, and rolls. For dessert I made Rose Pie (what a perfect name for today!!!). This is a cobbler type dessert that is named after my grandmother's aunt (or cousin, we're not sure which!), Rose East. It is a cobbler that rises over the fruit.
I made an apple version, though in my mind peach is the perfect flavor. You can use any fruit that you want to use. I decided to use apples. I used the canned apples that were cooked for desserts but unsweetened and sweetened them myself. I haven't made this is a while and did realize that the batter is so liquid. It is almost the consistency of a thin pancake batter. Don't worry, this IS the way it should look and it does cook to be like a cobbler topping. Also, it doesn't fully cover the fruit. I didn't realize this and though I had done something wrong, but both Mama and Daddy said that was how it worked. So, enjoy this yummy and easy dessert with YOUR family!
Rose Pie
1/2 stick butter/margarine
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 cups, sweetened fruit (I used 1 can of apples for desserts, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup splenda, and some cinnamon) - Mama said she uses pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in the bottom of a small casserole. Mix together dry ingredients. Stir in milk. Pour over butter, do NOT stir. Pour fruit over batter, do NOT stir. Place in oven and cook until batter is browned (about 30-40 minutes).

He is risen indeed!

Love your blog. Your dessert recipe looks interesting and similar to a recipe that uses a cake mix. I'm going to try it!

I'm glad you had a good Easter!
I did as well.
The Rose Pie looks like something I made with blueberries once, I think it was called blueberry claflouti???

I'll have to give this one a try.

Glad you all had a good Easter! Such a cute picture of you and your family, and you know you are really making me hungry with the pictures of all the yummy food :)

I wonder if I could use that can of cherry pie filling lurking in my pantry and make the Rose Pie? I might have to give it a try, the apple one you made looks scrumpdillyicious!

Have a great week!

Jancd - Amen! I hope that you like the dessert. What is the one with the cake mix?

Paula - It was a really nice day. I was excited to have them here.

Annie - It was great. It could be the same thing. This is really good and really easy. Blueberry would be good, too.

Stacy - It was good. I'm sure the cherry filling would be GREAT. Although I'm not a big cherry fan in desserts, they do make good cobblers.
