  • In small bowl, combine flour, sugar, and egg. Mixture will be crumbly and not fully mixed, but do your best. Cover apples with this crumb mixture. Slice butter into very thin slices and spread as evenly as possible on top of cobbler mixture.

  • Apples: I prefer to use a variety of apples to give the best taste and texture. Choose from a mixture of sweet and tart. I used a combination of Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Fuji and Jonagold (it was what I had on hand but it worked extremely well).
  • This cobbler recipe is excellent on it's own and even better when served warm a la mode with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
