    Cooking apples are baked under a sweet cobbler topping until they are tender and oozing with juice. Lovely with custard.

    I have never made a cobbler or really baked anything. Substituted flour with GF flour substitute but otherwise did the recipe. Got rave reviews from everyone.  -  03 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good. I doubled it and used a 9x13 pan. I used less sugar. 1 c. when doubled with the apples, as some suggested. Disappeared quickly! Less in crust too.  -  29 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this as directed except for the sugar. I reduced the sugar by almost half (it's just what I always do). I also used brown sugar instead of white in the granny smith apples mixture because I was running low on white. As noted in the recipe, I used 1/2 and 1/2 milk as a replacement. Very tasty! The topping is what makes this special. Served with a bit of whipped cream on the side. Delicious with coffee  -  14 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
