Recipe Notes for the Best Apple Cobbler

  • Best Apples for Cobbler: I like to use gala apples, granny smith and honey crisp are also favorites. Any firm apple will work. If you are using a tart apple, like granny smith, increase the brown sugar to 2/3 cup.
  • Do I Have to Peel the Apples? Peeling the apples is optional but we like the texture of the cobbler best if the apples are peeled.
  • What Size Pan for Apple Cobbler: A basic 9 x 13 glass baking dish is my favorite for baking cobblers. They are also super handy for your favorite casseroles and the one thing I tend to forget at potlucks!
  • How to Store and Reheat Cobbler:I do find that this cobbler is best if you eat it the first day. If you have leftovers, coverwith plastic wrap or aluminum foiland store at room temperature for 1 day. Refrigerate up to 3 days. Let it come to room temperature or warm it up in the microwave.
  • Serving:I love to serve thishomemade apple cobblerwith a scoop or two ofVanilla Bean Ice Cream, it’s so comforting and delicious.
