Fall is here! Fall is here! Can you tell that I’m excited? It’s hard to believe that it is officially Fall when it is still 95 degrees here in Nebraska. The weather needs to get with the program! Oh well, it’s looking like it will cool off next week and I can go full-speed ahead into cozy mode. One way to do so is to whip up a batch of this Apple Pie Cobbler! Stone fruits and berries don’t need to be the only stars in a cobbler. Take one bite of this Apple Pie Cobbler and it’s like the sweet apple pie of your dreams without all the work! Don’t forget about the quick caramel sauce topping, because what isn’t better with caramel drizzled on top of it?
We went to the annual Applejack Festival held in Nebraska City last week and hand-picked these beautiful Jonathan apples, so they were fresh and juicy! Since I had fresh Jonathan apples on hand, I went ahead and used those, but you can use your apple of choice in this dish (I would stay away from really sweet ones such as Red Delicious). This dessert screams fall and comfort, and you don’t even have to slave over it! It is the perfect fall dessert to feed a crowd, bring to a holiday party, or to bake a batch and have leftovers to heat up throughout the week. Be careful, though, because this cobbler is so good that my yellow lab decided to eat almost the whole thing while I was running errands! It was covered on the counter and she just sat on up there and had herself a nice, big snack.
The biscuit topping gives this cobbler a “pillow-effect” that is just so compatible with the sweet, juicy, cinnamon apples underneath. Call me crazy, but I love apple skins and peach skins, so I always leave them on my fruit, but you can definitely peel your fruit before baking if you prefer! Leaving the skins on does give the apples a little bit more of a bite in texture, so if you want to avoid this then I would recommend peeling them prior. Bake this Apple Pie Cobbler up this fall, drizzle on some quick caramel sauce and dollop with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to get the full apple pie effect!
