An old-time cobbler with warm and tender spiced apples topped with sweet biscuits.
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 cups sliced, peeled apples
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
- For Biscuit Topping: Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or the tips of your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Combine milk and egg and add all at once to the flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Set aside.
- For Apple Filling: Combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Add the apples and toss to thoroughly coat with sugar mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until apples are almost tender, about 7 minutes.
- To Assemble Cobbler: Pour hot filling into an 9-inch square or round baking dish. Immediately spoon biscuit topping into 6 mounds on top of hot filling.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Serve warm with light cream, whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
