When I was a child growing up in Southern Indiana my grandparents had an apple orchard.  We grandkids loved playing there under the trees.  This cobbler recipe always reminds me of those days so long ago!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

5 cups peeled and sliced tart apples*
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp water
2 tbsp butter

Mix together and pour into a lightly buttered 8-inch square baking dish.  Top with the batter below:

1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 egg, slightly beaten

Mix batter together and drop over the apple mixture in 9 portions.   Sprinkle top with some cinnamon sugar, if desired.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes until apples are tender and topping is lightly browned.

*I prefer Granny Smith apples.  It usually takes 6 to 8 medium apples to make 5 cups.

Note: This is a file photo, probably peach cobbler, but it shows how this cobbler recipe looks.
