Apple Cobbler..Yum

I made a homemade apple cobbler for dinner tonight, and it was wonderful. I thought I would share it with you all. :)  I got the recipe off of an app on my phone, called Big Oven.

 the recipe is :

Southern Apple Cobbler

4 lbs Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice

1/2 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 teaspoon Dried Lemon Peel, (or fresh lemon zest)

2 cups Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Soda
3 tablespoons Sugar
5 tablespoons Butter (it called for shortening, but I prefer Butter)
3/4 cup Milk

Preheat oven to 425 F. Peel and slice apples, (if you havn't done it yet) Drizzle with Lemon Juice. Mix 1/2 cup Sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Lemon Peel, toss with apples to coat. Place apples in 9 inch square or round casserole dish.
Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder, cut butter in until it is crumbly. Add milk and stir with a fork until mixed. Form a ball, (I needed to add a little more flour here because the dough was too sticky) and turn onto a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to slightly bigger then the casserole dish, Place dough on top, seal the edges, and cut vents in top of dough. If desired, brush milk, or egg wash over the top and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. ( I used regular cinnamon sugar here, since I amnot sure what the other sugar is... maybe the big sugar?)
Bake in oven at 425 F for 10 minutes, then turn oven down to 350 F and bake another 30-40 minutes until crust is golden brown. Let cobbler set for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy.

C- really enjoyed it :)

The recipe said it served 6, but five of us ate, and we had half of it left, so it will probably feed ten :) I think it would be good with some ice cream as well, but I didn't have any.
Good luck, and let me know if you try it and how it goes.
Happy Baking :D

We all liked it :D


  1. Mmmm, sounds VERY yummy! The turbinado sugar is just raw sugar (labeled raw sugar in the grocery), but I think I like the cinnamon sugar idea the best!

  2. This looks just too good. I really want some!!!!
