How wonderful this is! It smelled great baking and I could hardly wait for dessert. DH and I both enjoyed it. I used a 20 oz can of pie filling and we thought it could use an extra 1/2-1 can of filling. Largest dish I had was a 9x13-inch, which did work but this would work better in the larger dish. (Now, I'll have to go shopping.) Thanks for an easy, tasty dessert.
