Apple Cobbler

November 3, 2011

Some friends and I went apple picking last weekend, which means bags of delicious hand-picked apples. To celebrate fall, we had a Sunday dinner that ended with this cobbler. It’s not too sugary, and the apples will still be a bit crisp at the end of the baking.

You will need:

  • 5 c apples, peeled & sliced (1 apple usually yields about 1 cup)
  • 1 c sugar, divided
  • 2 T + 1/2 c flour, divided
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t ground ginger
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/4 c water
  • 3 T butter, softened and divided * Topping: * 1/2 cup flour, sifted
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 T milk

Then you will…

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apples with 1/2 cup of the sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla and water.
  3. Spread apples in the prepared pan. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Drop batter across the top of the apples. Batter will spread slightly during baking.
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with yogurt or ice cream.
