Apple Cobbler

Filling:
5 medium apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons corn starch
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Topping:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons chilled butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water

Cinnamon Sugar:
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons white sugar

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. Combine filling ingredients, except butter in a large bowl. Stir to coat and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Dot with the two tablespoons of butter. Bake for 10 minutes.

3. While the filling is baking, combine all topping ingredients except butter and water. Blend butter into the mix with finger tips or a pastry blender. Mixture should be chunky. Add 1/4 cup boiling water. Stir until just combined.

4. Remove filling from oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over it. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake until topping is golden - about 30 minutes.

If this sounds mysterious like the peach-blueberry cobbler, it's because it is the same thing, with the addition of two tablespoons of butter. It was quite tasty. It received rave reviews from the groom and was proclaimed "maybe his new favorite fall dessert." Score! Serve warm with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

It sounds like a bowl-full of autumn. I need to try it, right after the ginger cookies. :-)
