I am having fun in Florida playing with grand kids. While here my son’s in-laws made this for us. It is a apple cobbler/ apple dumpling fun dessert. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Apple Cobbler Filling
6 Gala or golden delicious or johnagold apples (about 8 cups) 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice or Orange juice 4 Tablespoons Butter 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 Cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 Cup cold butter cut into 1 Cubes
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 teaspoon lemon or orange zest
1 Tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger, optional
Cinnamon sugar for dusting
Peel, quarter, core, and then dice apples. Toss with lemon juice to prevent browning. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chopped apple mixture, sugar, cornstarch and spices. Sauté until just tender not mushy, about 10 minutes.
While the apples are cooking prepare the topping. In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. With a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the butter is about the size of peas. Stir in the buttermilk, zest, and ginger. Stir only until combined.
Place cooked apples into a 9×9 pan or a 9 inch deep pie pan. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the hot apples using all the dough. Sprinkle top of dough with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
