Easy Apple Cobbler Recipe

apple cobbler

I think this may have been everyone’s favorite apple dessert while we were on vacation in North Carolina.

The Easy Apple Cobbler is just that – EASY. The topping reminds me a lot of a a sugar cookie dough, but it doesn’t taste like that. It was the cookie consistency when I was mixing it up. The fresh apples were delicious and I’m so glad we were able to pick so many.

Not having measuring cups or a hand mixer, we just “eye-balled” the measurements and I mixed everything in a bowl. Also, the pan I used was more like 9×13 and it turned out just great. Everyone even asked me to make another batch as soon as this one was gone (after only 15 minutes!).

  1. I made this today and it was easy and delish, but I too think I will make with less water. I like my crust firmer. However it was not liquidy
