This apple cobbler recipe is an old-fashioned dessert perfect for fall. With tender apples, cozy fall spices, and a biscuit-like topping, all that’s missing is a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
For the Filling: Granny Smith apples Lemon Unsalted butter Granulated sugar Cinnamon Ground nutmeg Kosher salt Vanilla extract All-purpose flour Ground ginger
For the Topping: All-purpose flour Granulated sugar Baking powder Cinnamon Unsalted butter Whole milk Salt
For the filling, add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and toss to coat evenly.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, two forks until the consistency is of coarse crumbs. Slowly stir in the milk a little at a time to moisten the dough.
Drop spoonfuls of the topping over the apple filling. Bake until the topping is golden brown and the apple filling is bubbling.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and sprinkle some extra cinnamon on top.
The nice thing about this apple cobbler recipe is that it’s forgiving! If you have trouble getting pie crust perfectly crimped on the edges, you’ll love that a cobbler simply involves plopping the dough on top of the filling.
