Apple Pie Cobbler Skillet
A mix between apple pie and cobbler. Filled with tart granny smith apples and cinnamon sugar topped with a thick crust thats a cross between pie crust and a biscuit.
It's an apple pie, it's a cobbler, it's an Apple Pie Cobbler!
I spent all weekend trying to decide what to call this bad boy.
It's a bit like a thick flaky pie crust top with a little bit of a fluffy biscuit underneath with lots of cinnamony apple goodness.
Colt and the kids just kept saying how amazing it is but still wouldn't help name the cinnamon apple deliciousness..
So we're just going to call it Apple Pie Cobbler, the best of both worlds with a butter cinnamon sugar topping..
Other then trying to name this little deliciousness we didn't seem to accomplish much of anything this weekend except a lot of loafing.
We may or may not have been in PJ's until 2PM and by we I mean me and Colt.
Hey don't judge you should try it out once in awhile, it was so nice!
Alright so back to the recipe here's how it's done.
Mix together sour cream, milk, vanilla and sugar until well combined.
In a medium/large bowl mix together 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt and 3 teaspoons baking powder until well combined.
Cut in 1 cup cold butter using a pastry cutter until butter is the size of small peas.
Add all of the sour cream mixture and stir together until moistened using a fork and a tossing motion.
Form dough into and disk. Cover dough in plastic wrap and place in freezer for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combined 8 cups peeled, seeded and diced Granny Smith Apples, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons flour and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.
Mix until well combined and set aside.
Roll dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap to about 1/2" thickness.
Cut dough into 2" circles using a biscuit cutter to make a total of 8 biscuits.
Place apples into a large cast iron skillet or 9x13 baking dish. Cover apples with rounds of dough and brush dough with butter.
In a small bowl mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon until well combined. Sprinkle evenly over the top.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes or until biscuits are lightly brown, cooked through and apples are tender.
Then I strongly suggest eating these warm out of the oven with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream.
