Treasured by my family, this easy recipe for apple cobbler is a delicious old-fashioned dessert. It travels well and slices nicely, so it's perfect for picnics or tailgate parties. We like apples, but you can use your favorite fruit. —Rita Reifenstein, Evans City, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons milk
  • 8 cups peeled tart apples, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly.
  2. In another bowl, lightly beat eggs and vanilla; add to crumb mixture. With a fork, gently mix in milk to moisten. Stir until dough forms a ball. Press half of the dough into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Chill the remaining dough.
  3. Toss apples with tapioca, cinnamon and remaining sugar; place over dough in pan. On a lightly floured surface, roll chilled dough to fit top of pan. Place over apples. Brush with milk. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle on top. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden.
