Camper's Crumble


      Next to a dump cake, here's just about the easiest dutch oven dessert you'll ever make.  Mix a package of oatmeal cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker) with a stick of melted butter then sprinkle over canned apple pie filling in your dutch oven.  The top bakes into a crispy, crunchy oatmeal crust over the bubbling fruit.  I made this in my 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 20 briquettes on the lid, in 20 minutes it was hot and golden.  If you decide to try this in your 12 inch oven use one package of cookie mix with three cans of pie filling and in your 14 inch oven, double everything.  If you're cooking for two, use half the amounts in your 8 inch oven.  Use any flavor pie filling and add cinnamon or nuts to the cookie mix if you want to dress it up a bit.  No measuring required and if you don't feel like melting the butter, just soften it and mix the topping with your fingers.  With very little effort you can enjoy this sweet and simple dessert around the campfire.

    1. Hi Laurie, than you for your nice comments, I'm sorry but I don't send any notifications out via email, afraid I'm not very tech savvy. Thanks for stopping by! Liddy
