  • 4 apples peeled, cored, and thinly sliced Granny Smith, Gala, or Honey Crisp works well
  • cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

Cobbler Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup milk, any kind (I used 2%)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • Salted Caramel Sauce or jarred topping of choice


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Stir well to combine, ensuring that all apples are coated with mixture. Spread in an even layer in prepared dish. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add vanilla, milk, and unsalted butter. Stir well to combine. Pour batter evenly over apple mixture. (*SEE NOTE BELOW*)
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until edges are set and topping is cooked through and golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Before serving, top with salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream, if desired.
