Apple Cobbler Recipe
Serves: serves 4-6
  • 4 cups fresh apple chunks (do not peel)
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground nutmeg
Biscuit topping:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • ⅓ cup milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a 2-quart square glass baking dish, combine the apple chunks, brown suagr, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir well and spread out.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon. Using either two knives or a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk until the dough holds together.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and gently knead until it forms a smooth dough. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a square approximately the size of the glass baking dish. Gently transfer it to top the apples.
  5. Slide the baking dish into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until bubbling at the sides and golden on top. This is delightful served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
