A Fall Favorite -- Apple Cobbler

Fall is my second favorite time of the year, after Winter of course.  But living in Florida, we very rarely get to see cold weather come and make it's appearance.  But when we do, I'm running to the kitchen to bake something.

There's something almost magical about hearing my children's laughter outside, warm candles burning inside, and the smell of something baking in the oven.  It's the coziest feeling to me.  For me, Autumn brings anything and everything apple.  Pies, cobblers, cider...I love it all.  So I thought I'd share my recipe for apple cobbler with all of you in hopes that you can enjoy this warm and delicious dessert on a cold Fall day.  

If you've never had apple cobbler (who are you? Show your face! I've personally never met anyone who hasn't tried it) it's a crumbly, flaky, and sweet biscuity type bread on top of a warm and sweet apple pie filling.  It was my favorite as a little girl and I make it every year for my kids to enjoy it, too!

For this recipe, I almost always double the topping because it normally makes 5-6 biscuits. This is completely optional but  I like every inch of apple covered with biscuit, so I always double it.  When you double the topping, they'll expand where you kind of get a biscuit crust over the top.  I found this way a little better than normal because I just cut the cobbler into squares instead of just scooping it out and everyone gets an even amount of apples and biscuit.  


  • 6 Cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin (Usually around 5-6 apples, depending on the size)
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 Tsp. cinnamon


  • 1 Cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup milk


Heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine all filling mix and mix until all the apples are coated.

Place apples into a large pot and cook over medium heat until tender, about 10-12 minutes.

Place in a 13x9 pan.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, suar, baking powder, and salt.  Mix well.

Cut butter into squares, and with a pasty blender or fork, cut butter into flour mixture until crumbly.

Add in egg and milk and mix well until everything is combined (dough will be a little sticky).

Place mounds of dough over the apple filling. 

Bake on 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

Serve warm and enjoy!
