Apple Cobbler Recipe from addapinch.comThere’s just something about cobblers that makes them immediately comforting, warm and inviting. I’m not sure if it because they seem to represent a humble time and way of cooking or if it is because they remind me of both of my grandmothers, my aunts, and of course the recipes Mama has always made. Easy and economical, they seem to be the best blend of using the simple ingredients that you have to make something even more special.

I have the same vein of thinking where biscuits are concerned, too. In my nearly 43 years, I’ve never met a person who didn’t like biscuits. Never. Everyone’s family has their own special touch to make their biscuits and that makes them even more wonderful, I think.

For this apple cobbler, I begin by tossing three types of apples in a mixture of apple pie spice and brown sugar. Then, I quickly saute them in a medium skillet with butter until they are just fork tender. Then, I mix together my buttermilk biscuit recipe that I add a bit of sugar to for sweetness since they will be part of a dessert. Light and fluffy, tender and flaky, I love the addition of these biscuits to my apple cobbler! They just make it!

Honestly, the biscuits themselves would be dessert enough many nights or would make a fun breakfast treat, but when combined with the apples and the delicious sauce from the cobbler, they are out of this world.

  1. Thank you for mentioning absolutely the best flour, White Lily. For those readers not familiar with it, you have been given an early Christmas gift. Even simple biscuits made only with self-rising White Lily and whipping cream will melt in your mouth. And, thank you also for the best recipes on any blog.

    1. Oh yes, absolutely perfect for a Sunday supper dessert, but definitely doable for a weeknight too. (Oh, and if you have some leftover, it makes the best breakfast! HA!)
