I didn’t have any peaches yesterday (we eat them too fast) and I wanted something sweet to go with dinner.. So, apple cobbler it was! I tweaked the original recipe and put in FAR less sugar, and it tasted yummy! I used organic apples so did NOT peel them (most of the good stuff is in the peel!)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter (1 stick)
1 tsp cinnamon
4-5 washed apples – use a mix of tart and not as tart 🙂
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. Cut in butter with pastry blender until it resembles small crumbs…
Grease a 9×13 pan, dust the bottom of the pan with the flour/sugar mixture. Reserve 1/2-3/4 cup for topping.
Cut all apples (once again I did not peel – use your own judgement!) into like pieces – I used an apple corer.
Put one layer of apples in the pan, then another layer of flour/sugar mixture, and keep layering until all apples are used. Place remaining 1/2-3/4 cup flour/sugar mixture on top.
Place (uncovered) in oven and bake for about 45 minutes. The time depends on the heat in your oven (I used a toaster oven as it was blazing hot outside and I did not want to crank up the regular oven). Cobbler is ready when apples are tender.
Serve warm – with vanilla ice cream of course 🙂
As always – enjoy!
