Cooking From Scratch - Apple Cobbler

Updated on November 3, 2007

One of my favorite fall deserts is Apple Cobbler. I don't have the patience or time to make my own pie crusts and I am not willing to spend the money on store bought crusts. Therefore it is always cobbler for me. Fall is a time of apples and this is a great way to enjoy them.


1/2 cup butter, softened

4 cups peeled and sliced apples

1/3 cup sugar

1 & 1/3 cups baking mix

1/2 tspn ground cinnamon

4 tblsp packed brown sugar

4 tblsp milk


In a one quart casserole dish combine the apples, sugar and cinnamon. In a different bowl mix the baking mix with the brown sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture is the size of small peas. Stir in the milk until this mixture is smooth. Drop by spoonfuls on top of the apples. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I use substitutions in this recipe all the time. I do think real butter tastes better, but I have a child who is allergic to dairy. I always substitute a dairy free margarine in this recipe and also rice milk for real milk. I still really love this recipe. If you have a dairy allergy, you can easily make substitutions in this recipe and still love it.

Apples are at their lowest prices in the fall and this is a very good, healthy (healthier than most deserts anyway), inexpensive option for desert during this time of year. I do however like to have apple cobbler at all times of the year. When we go apple picking in the fall I always put several bags of diced apples specifically for cobbler into the freezer. If you have to purchase apples from the grocery store, fall is the best time to purchase extra to freeze. After I peel and dice the apples I sprinkle them with Fruit Fresh, which will keep them from turning brown. They freeze very well. To make your job even easier you can add the sugar and cinnamon before freezing if you want.

You can do other variations of this desert as well. I have made peach cobbler before, using this exact recipe. Blueberry cobbler would be very good minus the cinnamon and adding lemon juice to the blueberries and lemon zest to the topping. Pear cobbler would be a good desert too, especially topped with vanilla ice cream. However you want to make cobbler, it is worth making. It is very easy to do and cooking from scratch will usually save you money as well.

      I like apple cobler very much. My brother in law makes a peach cobler that is out of this world. He is a retired fireman.
