Falling on my Head

Honey Apple Cobbler

International Incident Party time!  This is one of those months that really flew by, to the point that I’m typing this while my cobbler finishes baking.  Between the birthdays, the hurricanes, the flooding, and the allergies time just kept slipping by.   Luckily cobbler is one of those recipes that come together in no time, especially when I knew from the beginning that I wanted to use apples.  Apples are everywhere in Virginia this time of year and every year I wind up with at least 15lbs of the crisp delicious fruits.  While i was able to go apple picking the past few years, that has not happened this year, so I had to rely on the local market to get my Virginia apples.  This year I switched things up and got Cortland Apples, instead of my normal super tart Pink Ladies.  So far I have tested two new apple recipes and hopefully have enough apples to do two more.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups Cortland apples, quartered and then halved
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp honey (blueberry!)
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • dash salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Combine the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, honey, cloves, and butter in a large casserole dish.  Bake for 10minutes.
  3. In a large bowl mix the flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Cut in the softened butter .  Spoon the mixture over the cooked apples.  Bake for 30minutes, or until sauce is bubbling and the topping has browned.

Nothing like a delicious dessert that comes together in well under an hour, and also smells incredible.  This cobbler really highlights the essence of fall, nothing like the smell of cinnamon apples to know that fall really has arrived.

  1. What a delightful fall cobbler! I bet the smell of the apples mixed in with the honey and spices is absolutely heavenly. Now I’m craving to make a sweet cobbler, actually ;-).

    1. Thanks Trix! i actually got the honey from a place in Mt. Airy, Maryland who were at the MD Ren Fest selling their wares. Went for the blueberry after a long debate between it and pepper honey!
