Apple Streusel Cobbler

      Sorry about the lack of recipes lately, I have been going flat out with family obligations.  Finally had some free time today and seeing as how it's a perfect October day, dutch oven cooking was the first thing on my agenda.  To satisfy my craving for cooked apples and cinnamon I thought this recipe from Pillsbury looked very tasty and a different way to dress up an ordinary Apple Cobbler.  I baked it in my 10 inch dutch oven with 10 coals around the bottom, 14 briquettes around the edge of the lid and 4 coals spaced evenly around the handle.  The cobbler needs to bake for a full 50 minutes in order for the extra layer to cook all the way through but you don't want to burn the buttery topping.  The recipe calls for a 9 inch pan but you could easily bake it in your 12 inch dutch oven.  Also, the cobbler needs a good half hour to set up  and cool, I lined my oven for an easy clean up but it's not really necessary.  The topping caramelizes as it bakes, making a crispy contrast to the sweet, creamy filling, it's guaranteed to satisfy any one's sweet tooth.

  1. Good recipe! Couldn't be much easier to make, and it lends itself to a number of modifications that would allow you to make this frequently but with no chance of getting tired of it (if getting tired of apple streusel is even possible!).

  2. I made this it was awesome, with its caramel like layer and the yummy streusel topping. But no new recipes lately, Where are You? I love this site.

  3. I believe this would be awesome with any pie filling of your choice.

  4. Miss your post! Hope all is well!
