Instead of buying sleeve of fruit filling and paying the shipping, etc., can I just use a can of cherry pie filling between my layers? Anyone ever tried that? Thanks!
I have never tried that but I would have to think that the pie filling would have to be a little firm so that it won't leave under your dam.
i have seen other threads on this.. lots of people on here..say that do use pie fillings for their filling.. make a thick dam.. use the filling.. so, yes.. they say you can...hth
Yes - I agree. Just make a SUPER good dam and use the pie filling.
Thanks, y'all! You saved me some serious $$.
I recently made a chocolate cake with cherry pie filling and it was delicious!
Did you chop up the cherries or use right out of the can? Sounds like a great flavor combination.
I have used the lemon pie filling--works great.
I stirred it up with a spoon, which broke up a lot of the cherries. I figured it'd be too messy to try cutting them individually.
Could you perhaps process the cherries (or whatever filling) and then put some sort of thickening agent in it? Not sure on the thickener, any one ideas on this?, but just thought this could be useful with, of course, a good dam.
