Apple Cobbler

Right after I made the apple pie filling, I made this cobbler for dessert.  It is inspired by a peach cobbler from Gonna Want Seconds.  It is truly an amazing simple, easy, yet delicious dessert.  The cake-like topping stays crunchy--because of the sugar topping--yet moist underneath.  To intensify the apple flavor, I decided to change the water to apple cider.  It all came wonderfully in one dish that didn't last long in my house.  Everyone begged me to make another one!

 Give it a try, perhaps you'll agree!

Apple Cobbler

Makes one 8-x 8-inch dish

For filling:
2 pints homemade apple pie fillings

For cake topping:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup very hot apple cider

For sugar topping:
2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 400F.  Grease or butter 8-inch square baking dish.  Spoon apple pie fillings onto the dish, spreading it evenly.

Place all cake topping ingredients in a medium bowl, except the apple cider.  Rub the butter pieces with the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Pour in very hot apple cider and stir until the mixture just comes together.

Drop large spoonfuls of the dough over apples, try to even out the dough; it will not cover completely, do the best you can.  Sprinkle the top of the dough with the 2 teaspoons of sugar.

Place the baking dish on a cookie sheet, in case the cobbler bubbles over and drips; and bake for 15-20 minutes or until topping is golden and baked through.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of heavy cream.
