In the Kitchen | Easy Apple Cobbler

Aug 22, 2012


After a conversation with my grandmother about a cobbler she was making, I was inspired to find a good recipe and give it a shot myself. I found this one on Cooks.com that looked fairly simple and tried it out when we had a guest for dinner this past weekend. It turned out great! I made it again tonight for an after-dinner treat and it was delicious paired with some Breyers Vanilla Bean ice cream. Enjoy! 

Apple Mixture:
5 c. peeled, sliced apples (Granny Smith apples really add a good tart apple flavor, otherwise it is all sweet with no fruit taste)
1/2 c. sugar

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. butter, softened

Combine ingredients; mix gently. Spoon into a lightly greased 9-inch square baking pan; . Set aside.

Batter:
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 egg, slightly beaten

Combine batter ingredients; mix well. Spoon over apple mixture in 9 equal portions (batter will spread during baking). Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
Yield: 6 servings (or 4 if you're like us and like bigger dessert portions! A 9-inch pan really isn't a big size for more than four people. I'd suggest doubling the recipe for larger numbers)

 This is what it will look like before you stick it in the oven- the dough spreads really nicely throughout the dish while baking.
You can tell I was so excited to eat it that I didn't even snap a right-out-of-the-oven shot. So delicious.
