Dessert

Individual Apple Cobblers

The other night I was craving a dessert, but I didn’t want to make a whole pie, cobbler, cake, etc.  So I hopped on to Pinterest and found this amazing apple cobbler recipe.  I was able to make a cobbler for each family member and even better, it satisfied my sweet tooth without leaving a ton of leftovers to eat or give away.  I’ll definitely be making this recipe a lot.

Filling:

  • 2 large apples – peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon flour
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium egg, beaten and then half reserved (you will only use 1/2 of the beaten egg for this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 and grease 4 ramekins (mine are 8 oz). In a small bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and mix well. Fill the ramekins with the filling.  In another small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients for the topping, then mix in half of the beaten egg until it resembles coarse crumbles.  Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples.  Drizzle each ramekin with the melted butter.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and bubbly.  Let cool for about 10 minutes, then top with ice cream.
