I cannot even begin to tell you how good this recipe is! I’d suggest enjoying it with a good book and of a warm cuppa tea. Personally, I enjoyed this while reading Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series and a cuppa cinnamon chai.
Prep Time: 10 minutes Bake Time: 10-15 minutes Serving Size: 2 cobbler bites
Adapted from: Joy the Baker’s Apple Pie Biscuit Bites
Apple Pie Filling
1/4 red delicious apple, sliced thinly
1/2 tablespoon of butter
1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat all ingredients in a small cast iron skillet until the butter is melted and the apples are coated with the cinnamon and sugar.
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cold butter, cubed
1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat the oven to 425°.
3. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Add the cubed butter and stir to coat with the flour. Finally, add the buttermilk 1 tablespoon at a time stirring with a sharp knife. The dough is ready when it begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl and easily forms a ball.
4. Lightly flour a work surface and gently roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar over the right half of the dough. Top with the cinnamon apples and gently fold the left half of the dough over the apples tucking in the edges to ensure the apples are completely covered by dough. Slather butter on top of the dough and dust with the remaining cinnamon sugar. Cut the dough in two equal pieces and place each biscuit bite back into the cast iron pan.
5. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes until golden, bubbly and the biscuits are dry to the touch. Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
