Simple Apple Cobbler


It's been a while since I posted a dessert. Ya'll are starting to sound to skinny out there.

Doesn't this picture with apple pie filling just oozing a bubbling just make you want to lick your computer screen?  Is it just me?  Probably.

This is the first cobbler I learned to make shortly after I got married. This is not your traditional cobbler.  So don't judge.

It's simple, economical and oh, so very good.  The wonderful aroma while it's baking will hypnotize all who enter your home!  As far as taste...you can't stop eating it.  Seriously.

This is a method, you can use practically any kind of fruit you like; I learned using peaches.

So here we go:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray or grease a 9x9 of 9 x 13 oven safe dish.

Evenly spread  two cans of apple pie filling in the bottom of your dish.  (I used Comstock's)

Evenly spread 1 box of yellow cake mix over the apple pie filling.  (Just use plain old yellow cake mix, it doesn't have to be extra buttery or extra moist). You don't want to mix the cake mix with the pie filling, you want the cake mix to just sit on top.

Dot top with pats of butter, REAL butter.  If you use margarine, it will ruin your cobbler.  Sprinkle the top with cinnamon-sugar.

Bake for 40 - 50 minutes until the top is beautifully brown.  Depending on your oven, it can take up to one hour to bake.

Cool and enjoy!

Just look at that picture, it just knows vanilla ice cream will soon be joining it on a plate.

It looks and sounds wonderful, Katherine. It's always so nice to go back to some of the old recipes that carry happy memories with them. I hope you are having a fantastic day. Blessings...Mary

I love Comstock stuff it really makes it easy. When you don't have a cake mix use equal portions of self rising flour, sugar and milk. Mix it up and pour ofer the fruit and then pat with butter and cook the same, 350* for 30 40 minutes. Just as good. I've used ti both ways and love both recipes. Just wish I had some now with a little icecream, YUM!!

Funny, this reminds me I made a peach cobbler today and it's still in the, now cold, oven. Think I'll go have some. My cobbler is from fresh SC peaches so should be delicious.
