Home » Old Fashioned Apple Cobbler


There are some foods that we have to eat without interruption so that we don’t miss a single moment, savoring the last bite. The Apple cobbler is definitely one of those foods. We don’t know whether it’s the warm apple or the sweet biscuit that makes us put it down, but we just can’t get enough. We’ve tried many different recipes but keep coming back to this tried and true recipe. It’s pure comfort food, especially on a cold, stormy day, and we know you’ll agree.

Does the Old Fashioned Apple Cobbler have a bottom case?

This is actually a hot topic among some of the crowd, but by definition, no, a cobbler doesn’t have a bottom case. Cobblers have a fruity bottom and are usually topped with sweet cookie dough, but can also have a more cake-like consistency. Some people still swear by putting a bottom shell on their cobbler, but it’s not a traditional preparation.

What is the difference between cobbler and crisp?

Cobblers are topped with a batter, while shortbread is topped with a crumbly mixture, usually consisting of flour, cereal (such as oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts.

Dutch Oven Instructions:

You can use a 12-inch Dutch oven instead of putting everything in a 9×13 pan. To create a 350 degree oven environment, place 14 coals on the top and 7 coals on the bottom. The cooking time will remain approximately 1 hour.

Apple options:

There are hundreds of varieties of apples, so it can be difficult to know which one to buy. There are many common apples that are great for baking. Green apples like Granny Smith have a great tart flavor and are great for baking. Other yellow and red varieties that are good for baking include Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Braeburn, Jonathan, Fuji, and Pink Lady. Check the apple for freshness, it should be nice and firm. If the apples are limp, bruised, or discolored, you’ll want to throw them away.
