Warm fruit with a deliciously sweet crust is just too delicious to resist, especially when you pair it with vanilla ice cream! This recipe uses our favorite cobbler crust, which is a sweet cookie crust. It’s soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside, and it’s really the best part of any cobbler. If you’ve never made a cookie crust, you’ll be glad to hear it’s super easy to make! The really hardest part is cutting all those apples.

What kind of apples should I use?

When choosing apples for a cobbler or pie, you should pay attention to the recipe. A good cookbook will tell you what kind of apples to buy. There are hundreds of varieties of apples, so you don’t have to have an exact match, but if you know a little about the variety it needs, you can find a good match. This recipe calls for Granny Smith apples, which are a green tart apple. A tart apple balances the sweetness in the recipe. Granny Smith apples are also very good to bake without releasing too much liquid or becoming mushy when baked.

You can dice the cold butter or use a boxed cheese grater to grate the butter. Whichever method you choose, make sure your butter is very cold.

What is the difference between cobbler and crisp?

A cobbler is a baked fruit dessert with a batter or cookie crust. Crisp is a baked fruit dessert topped with a streusel-like mixture, often containing a mixture of oatmeal, butter, and sugar.

What if I don’t have a cast iron skillet?

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can always use a regular 9×13 pan.
