Apple Cobbler

Bowl of Gala Apples for Apple Cobbler

 

The delight of fall is seeing all the apples in the orchards and shops with apple cobblers, apple pies, candied apples, apple chips, apple bread, and apple cider.  Also in the fall, there are pumpkins of every size, squash of every variety , walnuts, hickory nuts, and pecans.  It is really harvest time.  Much thanks to be given.

There are many apple cobbler and pie recipes and every cook has a favorite.  My aunt would lay out a ring of pie dough about 8 inches circle, add apple slices, sugar and cinnamon, probably butter, before wrapping the apples in a little packet to bake.  I have not tried that method, I am sure it would not taste the same.

The recipe included here is one I found long time ago, do not remember the original source.  It was for peach cobbler, which was good too.  I adapted it for apple cobbler.

    I love homemade apple cobbler! There is something so comforting and fall like about it. Gala’s are one of my favorite apples, they stay nice and crisp when eaten fresh and are great in desserts! Your recipe sounds delicious 🙂
