Fall is right around the corner so lets give those pumpkin recipes a run for their money with all things APPLE!
Caramel Apple Cobbler to be exact!
Sweet cinnamon apples buried under loads of buttery, flaky cobbler topping served hot out of the oven!
Vanilla Ice Cream on top and drenched in caramel sauce!
You can of course use a pie plate and just go family style with the entire recipe into one dish.
You will see in the video as well as the written instructions that I used a splash of Pinot Grigio (for the adults at my party) into each cobbler; but of course you can leave that out and replace with a splash of apple juice.
I have been told that my cobbler topping is more like a biscuit topping, and yes I will have to agree with that.
There are some folks who make cobbler with a more pourable topping? Like a pancake batter almost? But that to me is more like a clafoutis and not a cobbler.
This version / style is the only way I like to eat cobbler and I think you will agree once you taste it!
