Making the Perfect Apple Cobbler

The perfect apple cobbler with a juicy and sweet filling similar to the filling of an apple pie…made with the perfect amounts of cinnamon and nutmeg, giving it a perfect flavor…a super fluffy and buttery cake-like biscuit topping…served warm with Blue Bell vanilla bean ice cream on top,,,and best of all perhaps, it is so very easy to make.

 

 

It’s a five step process…1.  slice the apples…2. toss them with spices…3. layer them in a casserole dish…4. top them with a biscuit crust…5. bake.

 

 

So let’s talk about how to make an old-fashioned apple cobber that would make your grandma proud…one that will soon become a tried and true family favorite.

Crisps vs Cobblers

But before we get started, let’s talk about the difference between a cobbler and a crisp.

 

 

Crisps usually typically have a crispy streusel-like topping—such as rolled oats, diced nuts, butter, and flour. Crisps are usually topped with a streusel like topping….whereas cobblers are topped with more of a cake-like or biscuit-like batter.

The Apples

Other great options include Gala, Honeycrisp, and Pink Lady.
Combinations…Using a combination of different apple varieties—such as gala apples together with honeycrisps—will add some depth to your cobbler. 

 

You will need three pounds of apples…which translates to about five or six.
