I LOVE Saturday in this house. Why you may ask? DESSERT NIGHT!!!!!!
In addition to grassfed top sirloin fillets (FIVE BUCKS!!! Insane deals at publix!), cucumber and cilantro salad, and home made yeast rolls, I am making apple cobbler!!!!
Every week we get a basket of fresh fruit and veggies from a local grower (http://leefarms.webs.com/order-here for my Florida followers!!!) and this week we got a really good amount of heirloom apples! So in order to keep them from going bad, I made some cobbler!
APPLE COBBLER WITH OLD FASHIONED OAT STREUSEL!
- 2 1/2 pounds medium Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples (about 5 or 6), peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
- 2 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (1/2 stick), cut into small pieces, plus more for coating the dish
- Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter.
- Combine the apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt in a large bowl and toss to coat. Place the apple mixture in the prepared baking dish and set aside.
- Using the same bowl as for mixing the apples, mix together the brown sugar, oats, flour, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt until evenly combined. With your fingertips, blend in the butter pieces until small clumps form and the butter is well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
- Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and bake until the streusel is crispy and the apples are tender, about 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool on a rack at least 30 minutes before serving.
