Apple Cobbler

In the 70’s, my neighbor Cam, who was the best cook and would always bring us samples of her goodies, made these and brought them to us one night. I had forgot about them until I saw the recipe posted on JustAPinch.com…..they are just so different. Easy, even if you don’t like to make pie crust, you can do this, I promise….so great to take to dinners and have to serve company…the perfect way to begin your Fall season of apple recipes.
