Apple Cobbler is a dessert made up of a baked apple filling and a simple biscuit-like topping. It is similar to Apple Crisp, which instead has a crunchy topping often made with oatmeal.






  1. Stir together apples, 2/3 cup sugar and 4 Tbs water in a large sauce-pan. Simmer, covered for 5 minutes or until fruit is tender.
  2. Add 2 Tbs water and 1 Tbs cornstarch. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.


  1. In a medium bowl stir together flour, 2 Tbs sugar, and baking powder.
  2. Cut in butter until mixture resembles large crumbs. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl stir together the egg and milk. Add to flour mixture, just to moisten.


  1. Transfer filling to 2-quart square baking dish.
  2. Using a large spoon, drop topping into small mounds on top of the filling.
  3. Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 400 °F oven (205 °C).
