Apple Skillet Cobbler

It's bake everything with apples season.

One of my boy's favorite treats since the summer is skillet cobbler.

It's one of those wonderfully versatile cobblers that adjust to the shifting of fruit seasons quite well.

From peaches and blueberries or nectarines and raspberries, and now to apples.

This takes a good 8 medium apples so be prepared to slice and dice.

This works great in a iron skillet but really can work in any baking dish.

Heat a bit of butter on medium heat.

Add apples.

Stir them a bit for even cooking, about 5-6 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.

Crumble in butter till coarse crumbs appear.

Add milk

Spread dough on top of apples.

Sprinkle with a bit of brown sugar and bake.

Pardon the lovely orange hue.  It's that awful time of year again, when it's dark when I'm in the kitchen and I have to rely on indoor lights and have to contend with shadows.

Happy Apple Baking!
