Easy Apple Cobbler, SL1983

It has been well documented that I gravitate towards recipes with "easy" in its name. As the Mister and I were returning home from a trip, we received a dinner invitation from a Hawkeye who also asked that we bring dessert. I knew this would be a perfect opportunity to use the fresh apples we brought home. The most time consuming part of this recipe, aside from baking, was peeling, coring and slicing fresh apples. Paired with a scoop of vanilla ice scream (next time I would like to try it with some Butter-Pecan Ice Cream), this Easy Apple Cobbler received rave reviews at dinner!
It looks really bad in this photo, but the taste was great!

From Southern Living 1983 Annual Recipes, Page 174

For the apple mix:
  • 5 cups apples
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter
Peel and thinly slice apples. (I used 5 large apples.) In a bowl, mix apples, sugar, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, salt, water, and vanilla. Grease a 9-inch square pan and spread the apple mix into the pan. Cut up 1 tbsp of butter and spread over the apple mix.

For the topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
In a separate bowl, combine topping ingredients (all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, and slightly beaten egg) and stir. Spread topping over the apple mix. Bake cobbler at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. (I baked it for 37 minutes in a preheated oven.)
