Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Crockpot Cherry 'Cobbler'

This recipe comes from a very dear friend of ours named Sandy.  I 'tweaked' it by using the sugar-free pie filling and cake mix and using light butter. This stuff is sweet! Even using sugar-free!  So if you have a sweet tooth, this is the dessert for you.  I think it comes out more like a 'dump cake' than a cobbler tho. And just think of the different pie fillings you could use.......

Makes 6 Servings @ 6 PointsPlus™
Makes 8 Servings @ 5 PointsPlus™

1 (21 oz.) can sugar-free cherry pie filling
1 box sugar-free yellow cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 TBSP vanilla

Pour pie filling into the crockpot.

In a medium bowl, mix together cake mix, butter and vanilla. (This becomes like a dough.)

Crumble this over the pie filling. Sprinkle with nuts.

Cover and cook on low for 3 – 4 hours OR on high for 2 hours.

MY SPIN: You'll only really use half of the cake mix mixture (yes, I meant to say that) so you can either half it before using or do like I'm doing......I have the other half in the freezer, hoping it will thaw out ok and I can make another one!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
