Apple Cobbler – with fresh apples from The Little Farm ( but store bought apples will do fine!) Cooking with kids means tasting a lot!

Here is a super easy recipe for Apple Cobbler. Our little ones loved tasting it – raw and cooked – and I loved delivering many offerings of it to friends, family and staff at The Little Farm.

Enjoy making it while you listen to a wonderful opera titbit – the late incomparable Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma – oh what a voice he had – superb. The last two notes give me goosebumps every single time I hear them……

Little Farm Apple Cobbler

My family likes the topping more than the apples – why not? That is where all the yummy parts are ( albeit not the healthy parts!). So my cobbler has LOTS of topping compared to other cobblers. If it is too much for you – just cut the Bisquick to 1 cup not 2 and the sugar to 1/3 cup not 2/3 and the butter to 3 Tbsps not 6. ENJOY!


Then for the topping:


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Toss the apples in a large bowl with the cinnamon,  and put into a baking dish.
  3. Combine milk, softened butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and the 1/2 cup Bisquik.
  4. Spoon over apples and mix well.
  5. Combine 2 cups Bisquik and all the brown sugar. Cut the cold butter into mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of  the apple mixture.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes or until browning on top.
