Apple Cobbler

apple cobbler recipeApple Cobbler is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I love the way that my house smells when I make it, and I love how comforting it is. Right now, my house is quiet, everyone is asleep. It is dark and a very rare rainy night. All I really want right now is this Apple Cobbler. And maybe a steamy cup of coffee.

This recipe is a hybrid of two other recipes that I really love. The filling is the filling from my Apple Pie and the cobbler part is from my Peach and Blueberry Cobbler. One night I was thinking about how much I loved both things and I got the brilliant (if-I-do-say-so-myself) idea to marry the two and this heavenly creation was born. I know that this is a good cobbler because I do not even want to put ice cream on it.

It is as if Mark Darcy is saying to Bridget, “I like you just the way you are.” It is perfect. Now I want to hunker down on the couch and watch Bridget Jone’s Diary. V. badly.

  5. Trisha

    Looks great! Do you yhink using red apples would be just as good or not so much? Its what I happen to have on hand.

    1. bakedbree

      Anything other than Red Delicious, they do not bake very well.

  6. Howecafe

    I dont believe I was a follower when you originally posted this recipe but sure glad I read your 7 things post as this was the first of your 7 recipes I went to! Can’t wait to try it this week as fall is near and this will help make the house smell sooo good as I decorate our house for fall. Love your posts! Thank you for taking the time to share your favorites and your family 🙂

    So, I recently “purged” myself of blogs that didn’t jive with my mentalitity, i.e. came off as judgemental or were overall snooty and preachy. Let’s just say I deleted A LOT. Anyway, I’ve been searching for new ones to follow but everything has been sort of – eh. And then I found you. I know we just met, but I must say, I think I’m in love. Love your attitude, your foods, your blog, EVERYTHING. Adding you to my reader now! Sure hope we can be food buddies – I think we have a lot of similar beliefs (let’s just say I read your chicken nugget post and I don’t even want to tell you what I spend for a family of TWO because of my beliefs!). I’ve yet to discuss such things on my blog because it’s new, but I feel you sistah! Okay, enough. I’m annoying 🙂

    P.S. Why did no one read this apple crisp? Insanity, I tell you!

    1. bakedbree

      Welcome friend! I am so flattered that I made the cut. And no, you will never be annoying.

    I found this recipe on pinterest and made it for my family last night! It was SUCH a hit! Everyone loved it and it is replacing our traditional homemade apple pie recipe because it is so good! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    1. bakedbree

      Wow, thank you! I take that as a compliment.

  9. Rebecca Orr

    Made this! It is in the oven as I type this. I hope it tastes as good as it looks and smells!

    1. bakedbree

      I hope so too!

    I want to make this for our Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend (Columbus Day to you U.S. folk) and have a question: Is the topping supposed to completely cover the apples? (noticed it didn’t QUITE cover them all in your pic).

    Thanks! Oh, also… do you think this would double okay?

    And, wait… one more question! What do you think about adding nuts to the topping.

    Okay, that was 3 questions.

    1. bakedbree

      It doesn’t matter if it covers it or not. Yes, it should double just fine. I am not feeling the nuts, but that is just me.

  11. francine

    i made this for a baby shower today and it was definitely a hit! thanks!

    1. bakedbree

      You are welcome! I love this recipe. 🙂
