Simple Apple Cobbler

Belinda Castillo


I make this when I don't have time to make an apple pie. My boys are apple dessert fanatics! Pies, turnovers, danishes, cobblers,,,,as long as it's apple.

The original recipe I found for this "magic cobbler" called for canned pie filling. I don't care for canned pie filling. Homemade tastes better and this is so easy to make! No need for canned!
