Caramel-Applesauce Cobbler

It's apple season!  Here in the most southern part of the United States our climate is to warm to grow apples, and we miss out on days spent at the apple orchards, picking, walking and enjoying the ambience of an autumn day.  However, we do not miss out on the availability, and the tradition of enjoying apples this time of year. 

My sister in law, Kim is a wonderful baker.  On a recent family gathering she brought along this simply prepared apple cobbler.  I love fruit pies and cobblers, and this is as easy as it gets for an enjoyable fruit cobbler.

Serve it up with the warm pastry strips and a scoop of your favorite ice cream. 


Caramel-Applesauce Cobbler
Prepared by Kim Wilson
Recipe from Southern Living

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
12 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-(15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts

Directions:
Melt butter in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add apple, sugar and lemon juice; cook, stirring often 20-25 minutes or until apple is caramel-colored.  Spoon into a shallow 2-quart baking dish.

Unroll each pie crust, and cut into 1/2 inch strips.  Arrange strips into a lattice design over filling; fold edges under.  Place remaining strips on a baking sheet.

Bake remaining strips at 425 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes or golden.  Set aside to serve with cobbler.  Bake cobbler at 425 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden. Serve warm with pastry strips and your favorite ice cream.

Enjoy!

I have a bowl of apples sitting on my kitchen counter right now. Guess what we're having for dessert?! This sounds so simple, but amazingly good. Can't wait to give it a try.

I can almost taste it. I'm going to the farm this weekend and buying more apples. Can't wait to make it.

What a beautiful cobbler Velva. I wish I had more time to bake and especially an apple cobbler. I have a kitchen table full of apples from a friend's tree. A good season for them here in Colorado.

Sounds wonderful! Just the way I like it:) Now if I could just hop on a plane and enjoy your weather and have that cobbler, I would be a happy camper.

Looks and sounds like the perfect fall dessert!

UrMomCooks said...

Lovely and quick! What could be better? This will end up on my weeknight dinner table!!!

Hungry Dog said...

That is a picture-perfect dessert! Lovely lattice work there.

I love the simplicity of this yet I know it's delicious! Perfect timing too, my neighbor just came down from New York and brought me 4 big bags of fresh picked apples!
Thanks for you kind thoughts and comment over at my place :-)

It looks delicious! Although I have never been able to figure out what a Dutch oven is...

This looks simply delicious and made even easier by using store bought pie crusts! Perfect for a family gathering too.

theUngourmet said...

This is so pretty. I love the lattice crust!

RamblingTart said...

She did such a good job! :-) I love that you cook the apples until they make their own caramely sauce. :-) Yum!

Miss Meat and Potatoes said...

I hadn't association cobblers with fall before but why the heck not? This looks like it belongs on a Thanksgiving buffet - especially with the apple and caramel. Thanks for sharing!

The Rowdy Chowgirl said...

There's just nothing better than apples and caramel together. And apple season is in full swing here in Washington--I might have to give this one a try!

Jacqueline said...

Years ago in college I made an apple crisp using sauce. I loved it. This sounds great. I would love a dish of it warm right now!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

I haven't had a cobbler in I don't know when. Yours looks delicious and perfect for this rainy day to cheer me up.

Ana Powell said...

So simple, so welcoming and so moreish ♥

Claudia said...

Caramel-apple cobber is huge in MN - love that this is caramel-applesauce cobbler- a wee bit different but very luscious. As this is. I love when family members bring scrumptious fruit treats!

Susi said...

I bet this is incredible with some homemade vanilla ice cream! :o)

teresa said...

oh wow, a beautiful and delicious fall treat! i want it!

Carolyn said...

Oh my, that is pretty. I never have the patience to make a lattice crust like that. I do feel fortunate in the fall to live in New England and be able to go apple picking. But ask me in February how I feel about living here!

Farmchick said...

Great looking dessert, Velma. I agree, perfect with ice cream.

Hello Velva. great idea. I loved the recipe! Here in southern Brazil have also cultivation of apples!

Hubby would love this! Love the strips of pastry on top...

Susan Fields said...

Warm cobbler and ice cream - delicious!

From the Kitchen said...

We do have orchards and I've just been to one--too late to pick my own but that's o.k., I paid extra and came home with enough McIntosh and Gala apples to keep us through the start of winter at least. This looks delicious!

Best,
Bonnie

Oh yum! This is just the kind of homey dish that makes me miss fall in the US :) I'll have to try your version here or the one for deep-dish apple pie I spied, sounds delicious! Have a nice weekend Velva!

Peanutts said...

yumm looks delicious.

Barbara said...

I love the idea of a pastry-covered applesauce cobbler! How creative of Kim, Velva. And yes, I'd put a big scoop of vanilla right on top!

Katrina V. said...

That looks beautiful! I have an apple pastry in the oven right now and it looks nowhere near as pretty as this one does (but hopefully it'll still taste delicious!)

Reeni said...

I am seeing all these lovely apple treats and I have five pounds of apples just languishing away! This is a glorious sight!

Your sister in law did a lovely job! Looks delicious!

I'm not sure it gets any easier or yummier than that Velva.
