Granny Smith Apple Cobbler

Granny Smith Apple Cobbler

Apple Compote

6 medium Granny Smith Apples
1/2 cup of water
2 TBS of apple cider vinegar
1 TBS of lemon juice
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of unpacked brown sugar
4 TBS margarine
1/2 cup of unpacked raisins
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of ground nutmeg

+ Put all ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan and put over medium heat. Mix thoroughly.

+ Wash, core, and dice apples (I prefer skin on but you can peal if you like). Add the diced apples to the pan as you cut them so that they don't start to brown. Stir after adding each half apple or so.

+ Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally for 10 - 20 minutes or so. You are looking for the liquid to reduce from a watery liquid to a thin syrup consistency.

Crust and Pan preparation

1 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of AP flour
1 tsp of salt
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 stick of butter

+ Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 13" x 8" baking dish with Pam cooking spray. Cut the stick of butter into chunks and put in the baking dish. Put baking dish into oven as it preheats to melt butter. Remove from oven once butter is fully melted.

+ Mix other ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined and most lumps are gone. Pour crust batter into the baking dish. Then spoon in the apple compote.

+ Use your judgement here. If you can get all of the compote and liquid in the pan without filling it too full go ahead. There may be more than you need however so don't over fill it and make a mess. (Any extra can be refrigerated and used in oatmeal or on pancakes or frozen until you make cobbler again)

+ Put into the oven and bake for 30 - 40 minutes. If your compote is especially runny it may need more time than this.

+ Turn off the oven and remove. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting or serving.

Can be served warm or cold. Warm with a scoop of ice cream is delightful.

  1. You can of course use different kinds of fruit with this same basic recipe. You can even use canned pie filing with the crust part of the recipe if you really want to.
