Apple Picking and Warm Apple Cobbler

We went apple picking recently with some friends at Stribling Orchard.  It was a beautiful fall day to spend with friends and my little family:

We only picked one bag full of apples but I'm still trying to use them all up!

I've already made an apple pie (I used this same recipe that I blogged about a while ago) so today I tried my hand at a cobbler.  Warm apple cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream?  Yes, please! 

Original recipe from All Recipes here.

What You Need:

Apple Filling
  • 5 cups tart apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled and sliced
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces

Topping (I doubled the following to have a more cakey cobbler - up to you!)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • cinnamon sugar for topping, optional
What You Do:
Heat the oven to 375°. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.
Combine the sliced apples, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, vanilla and water. Turn into the prepared baking pan. Dot apples with the pieces of butter.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the (or more if you doubled like I did) 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the beaten egg and softened butter and beat until blended. Using a tablespoon, drop batter evenly over the apple mixture. If desired, sprinkle the batter with a cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Serve warm with cream or a scoop of ice cream.
Serves 6 to 8.
