Apple Filling
  • 5-6 medium apples, sliced thinly
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cinnamon Biscuit Topping
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup cold butter, cubed
  • ½ cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
For serving
  • Turbinado or Coarse Sugar
  • Vanilla Ice Cream or your Favorite
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a 13x9 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or olive oil. Set aside for now.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add sliced apples, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon, and mix until well combined. Pour the apple mixture into the baking pan, and bake the apples for about 15 minutes.
  3. While the apple filling is baking, make the cinnamon biscuits.
  4. For the biscuit topping, whisk the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt together in a large bowl. Add the butter and break the butter into the flour mixture with a fork or pastry cutter until it appears crumb like. Drizzle buttermilk into the batter and mix until combined.
  5. Take the dough and flatten it. Then spread it on top of the apple filling. The dough doesn’t have to cover all of the filling.
  6. Mix together egg and milk to create an eggwash. Use a pastry brush to brush the eggwash over the dough. This will help the top of the biscuits brown. Sprinkle turbinado sugar on top of the dough.
  7. Bake the apple cobbler for 30-35 minutes until the top is slightly browned and the dough is baked through. Allow the cobbler to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Serve the apple cobbler à la mode - with your favorite ice cream!
