Pilgrim's Cranberry Apple Cobbler

     This cobbler from Duncan Hines is similar to a dump cake but when you cut the softened butter into the cake mix it becomes more of a streusel like topping.  The original recipe calls for a can of peach pie filling but since I couldn't find it at my grocery store I substituted it with the apple variety.  I baked this in my 10 inch dutch oven with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 16-18 on the lid.  After 30 minutes it was golden and bubbly.  If you decide to make this in your larger oven I would suggest doubling the amount of fruit filling but keeping the topping the same.  Really easy and incredibly good, serve it warm from your oven with your favorite ice cream, it's a seasonal winner.

1/2 cup (one stick) butter or margarine, at room temperature
1/2 cup pecans, optional

     Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven.
