Why do I heart cobblers? Jay’s grandmother made them especially for him when he was a little tyke. That love of his grandmother and her cobblers inspired me to create many new and different versions so that he would always have them for breakfast. Apple Cobbler was his favorite so this new apple and fruit recipe I created is now #1 on his list of favorites. You will LOVE it and I hope you will share the love of this “beyond the yum” cobbler with your family and friends for their Valentine breakfast.
I Grandmothers too!
• 4 medium Granny Smith apples*
• 3 large Fuji apples*
[*peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices]
• 2 cups Dried Fruit: Cherries, Berries & Mango
• 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup
• 1/3 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
• 1/4 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
• 1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish.
Toss first 7 ingredients in large bowl.
Add sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and toss to combine.
Transfer to baking dish.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until apples are bubbling. Open oven and carefully layer cream biscuits on top of cobbler. Return to oven and bake until biscuits are golden brown (about 10-15 minutes).
Prepare: Cream Biscuits*
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, cut up
1 cup whipping cream
Combine first 4 ingredients; cut in butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Add whipping cream, stirring just until moistened. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 5 or 6 times. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Set aside until needed.
*This is my favorite cream biscuit recipe. You can also use Bisquick topping.
Prepare: Cream Cheese Icing
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 pound cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups powered sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
Remove cobbler from oven and drop Cream Cheese Vanilla Icing by tablespoons onto cobbler while hot. The icing will glaze the biscuits and melt into the cobbler making it creamy, sweet and wonderful!
There will be lots of Valentine love to share with this recipe!
