Homemade dessert isn’t typically a weekday occurrence in my house. Who has the time? This recipe though, this one is a weekday winner. By using refrigerated biscuits, you can cut a bunch of prep time, making it more a matter of just stirring and pouring. Sure, it takes a little time to bake, but that’s mostly hands-off time, and the house will smell fabulous, with apples and cinnamon filling the air. When you make this, be sure to use Gala apples, as they lend themselves really well to baking without completely turning to mush.
Apple Cranberry Cobbler
- 3 Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
- 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 container (10.2 ounces) refrigerated home-style biscuits, quartered
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare small oval pan with vegetable pan spray.
In large bowl, combine apple slices, cranberries, lemon juice and vanilla. In small bowl, combine granulated sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Stir into fruit mixture. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Cover pan with foil.
Bake on foil-lined cookie sheet for 40-45 minutes, or until fruit begins to bubble. Remove from oven. Toss biscuit pieces in melted butter and distribute evenly over fruit, pressing biscuits down slightly into filling. Sprinkle biscuits with 2 T. sugar. Return to oven and bake 18-20 minutes or until biscuits are browned and filling is bubbly. Remove from oven. Cool 15 minutes before serving.
