A Bonnie Stern recipe usually does not require much tweaking. Such is the case with this apple cobbler from her book "Friday Night Dinners". I included my tweaks in the ingredients and did change the amount of sugar she used in the topping. I thought the sugar could be reduced so I made the change in the ingredient list. I used pink lady apples but any variety would work. I used nine apples as some of the apples had bruises so I peeled an extra one to make up for the parts that had been cut away while peeling the apples. Of course this cobbler was wonderful and the DH and company enjoyed it.
8 apples, peeled and thin - medium slices
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg or cardamon
1/2 cup sugar or splenda
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown or white sugar or 3/4 cup splenda
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
Place apples in a large mixing bowl and toss with cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Butter a 13 X 9 inch baking pan and spread the apples across the baking pan.
Using the same mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the dish and add the eggs. Combine the eggs the with flour until it is a crumbly texture.
Sprinkle the flour mixture over the apples. Drizzle with the melted butter. Bake in a preheated over at 350 degrees F for 45 to 55 minutes or until the apples are tender. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
