Servings: 8 Servings
- 3 pounds granny smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced thin
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup cold butter diced
- 1 cup half and half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss apple slices with lemon juice and vanilla. Add in cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar and stir to combine.
Pour the apple filling into a 12 inch cast iron skillet (or a 9x13 pan) and spread out into an even layer.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until it resembles a course meal, or pulse the whole thing together in a food processor.
Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter.
Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of theapples to form a nice cobbler crust.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour.
