Warm fruit topped with a sweet crust has a particular flavor that makes it impossible to resist, especially when served with vanilla ice cream! This recipe has a sweet biscuit crust, which is one of our favorite cobbler crusts. The greatest element of any cobbler, it is soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. You’ll be relieved to learn that making a sweet biscuit crust is very simple if you’ve never done it. Really, chopping all of those apples is the most difficult task.


You should take the recipe into consideration while selecting an apple for a cobbler or pie. You can find out what kind of apple to buy from an excellent recipe. You don’t need to have a perfect match because there are countless types of apples, but you will be able to acquire a good match if you know a little bit about the variety that is required. Granny Smith apples, a green, tart apple, are used in this dish. A tangy apple counteracts the recipe’s sweetness. Additionally, Granny Smith apples bake quite nicely and don’t release a lot of moisture or turn mushy when they’re baked.


If you spend money on a decent peeler, corer, and slicer, this recipe would go much more quickly. It genuinely eliminates the hard effort and should cost you $20 or less.


You can either dice your cold butter or you can use a box cheese grater to grate your butter. Whichever method you choose, be sure your butter is extremely cold.


Cobblers are fruit desserts that are baked and have a batter or biscuit crust. Crisps are baked fruit dessert dishes with toppings that resemble streusel and are frequently made of oats, butter, and sugar.


If you don’t own a cast iron skillet, you can always use a regular 9×13 pan.


For up to five days, keep any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Use the microwave to reheat single serving portions for a total of 30 seconds.

Cast Iron Apple Cobbler


Cast Iron Apple Cobbler

Serves: 8

Hands On Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes



4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

4 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 8 to 10), peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons cinnamon

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


The filling is prepared by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.

Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the sugars have dissolved, after adding the flour, lemon juice, and both types of sugar. Add and simmer for 7 to 10 minutes, stirring regularly, until the apples have softened slightly. Add the salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon, then turn off the heat.

To prepare the topping, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl using a fork. Pour the heavy cream in gradually and stir the mixture with a fork until it forms a sticky dough.

Over the apple mixture in the skillet, scatter pieces of the dough.

The remaining 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and the cinnamon should be combined in a small bowl.

Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the dough after brushing it with melted butter. Cook the contents and topping until thoroughly heated through, about 40 minutes, then place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any drips. Serve hot.
