Autumn Apple Rum Raisin Cobbler

I started out to create a pie and quickly remembered that I don't like to make pie crust! So when all was complete I decided I had a cobbler.

This is not too sweet but is rich and spiced. I also have posted my Honey Butter Rum Sauce to be served on the side if you feel particularly decadent some day!

I decided that some almond would be good with the apples so you will find a dash in both the filling and the crust. I love the hint of flavor that it lends!

Do not let the long ingredient list discourage you from trying this. This goes together easily.

How to Make Autumn Apple Rum Raisin Cobbler

Step-by-Step

  1. For Filling:

    Place apples in a large saucepan. Add apple juice, white and brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves (or Allspice). Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Combine cornstarch with lemon juice; add to saucepan. Bring to boil again while stirring. Cook and stir until thickened.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in raisins (do not drain!) and almond extract. Allow to cool; stirring occasionally. When cool, pour into 9-10 inch high side baking dish. (I used deep dish pie plate).
  4. For crust:

    In medium bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and mix well. Add flour and stir until incorporated. Batter will be thick. Spoon over filling and smooth out.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
    Delicious hot or cold! Serve w/ or w/out ice cream or if feeling particularly decadent:

    Serve with Honey Butter Rum Sauce (also posted) if you dare!
