This month’s Cooking Club theme was “When I think of Fall I think of _____”.
Have you ever tried to make an apple pie in a crock pot? Neither have I. The task seems a little daunting. I settled on a cobbler.
Hmm… Apple Cobbler.
Simple enough, right?
non-stick cooking spray
4 medium tart apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, grated rind and juice of
1 dash cinnamon
5 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup natural cereal with nuts and fruits
Grease side of 3 1/2 quart Crock-Pot lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
Core, peel and slice apples; place in crockpot. Add sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and cinnamon. Combine butter and cereal. Add to crockpot; mix thoroughly. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or High for 2 to 3 hours. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
This recipe for Apple Cobbler serves/makes 4
Heh. Yeah, right. Serves 4? I need to serve 12. But I don’t really because there are going to be 2 other desserts there as well. So I need enough to give everyone a good taste.
Off to the store I went….
Apples, hrmm, no apples like what I have in the yard back home. Next best thing? Hey, Granny Smith’s are on sale in a package. 6 to a package. 2 packages would be too many. 1.5x the recipe it is!
Get the rest of the stuff and start peeling apples. After peeling some apples, I peel more apples. And after seemingly more apple peeling, I remember why I wash potatoes, and cube them up without peeling them!
Everything in, I make the cobbler stuff, and put a little extra on the top.
Hours later it is really really good. Maybe just a tad too much lemon, but I was really annoyed with all that apple peeling, and squeezed the daylights out of that lemon!
My Recipe ended up being.
6 Granny Smith Apples
1 cup Splenda
1 lemon, grated rind and squeezed to death
1 dash of cinnamon, with a sprinkle on top to add color
1 stick butter
maybe 2 cups of cereal after I was said and done. I sprinkled some on top for color
I cooked it on High for an hour or so, then on low for a good long time. When I got there, I took the cover off and did it on low while we where eating, hoping to dry the top off a little. .
