Fabulous Apple Cobbler

Apple Cobbler square


This Apple Cobbler is always a hit when I make it.  I found the recipe here.  I tend to alter it a little everytime I make it by adding some more cinnamon or flour as I see fit.  It is pretty easy to make and turns out delicious every time I make it.  It is often requested as well.  Definitely give it a try!

Apple Cobbler 1



Peeled, cored and sliced apples- enough to fill a 9×9 baking dish half way.  (I like to cut them pretty thin as I think it tastes better that way :)

2 tsp. vanilla (divided)

1 1/2 c sugar (divided)

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2/3 cup melted butter

1 egg

1 c flour

1/4 tsp. baking powder

pinch of salt

1/2 c nutmeats (optional, I never put them in)



Preheat the over to 35o degrees.  Butter the 9×9 baking dish.  Put enough apples into the baking dish so it is 1/2 full.  Sprinkle the apples with 1 tsp vanilla.  Then sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon over the apples evenly.

Combine the melted butter, egg, and the remaining vanilla.  Then add 1 c sugar, flour, baking powder and salt and mix together.  Pour batter evenly over the apple slices.  I tend to spread it out using a spatula as well.  Then bake for one hour in the oven.

Yum!  Serve it warm with some ice cream and everyone will be asking for seconds!

I Love Fridays

Linking up to some Friday link ups.  What have you been doing this week?
1- Daily Deal sites.  I may have a slight obsession with them.  I love getting up and checking to see what is offered each day.  Of course then I am really sad when I see I missed out on something.  Sometimes I wonder what time people get up to snag the deals!  Anyone else?  Very Jane & Groop Dealz are my favorites :) I love the clothing although most is hand wash only, so be careful!

2- My Hunter Boots.  Now I know, they are just rain boots and maybe all boots are made the same but I don’t think so.  I absolutely love them.  My sister got them for me for Christmas and they are absolutely amazing.  I got really excited when we had rain this weekend (South Texas, rain is pretty uncommon) thinking I could wear them but then it was dry.  I actually have the Huntress ones because they are not as tall and being short (5′ 2.5″) the tops of the originals hit my knees.  

3- Target. I don’t think I need to say more. I used to have a Target 3 min down the road when I lived in TN and it is amazing how you can just spend $20+ everytime you go in there. Thankfully one is now further away and I need to plan my trips. Amazing how much money I have saved. Target is teaming up with Toms in November. Whose excited?


4- Animals that are getting along. They don’t always get along, more often than not Willow is annoying the heck out of Pancake.  Earlier this week Pancake was sleeping on my bed and Willow came and jumped on her… Pancake fell off and the bed is T.A.L.L.  But Willow is a kitten and Pancake is an older dog :)  But when they get along like this I love it!


5- Brianne is here this weekend! She is visiting me from Arizona and I am very excited! We are going to have a very busy weekend!

Fall Favorites: Food Edition

There have been so many fall recipes that I have been seeing around the internet and linked up to Handmade Tuesdays (com link up every Tuesday (Goes live on Monday at 5:00 pm).  I would love for you to join next week :)  I wanted to share some of my favorites that I have found.  Have you found any fall food ideas and recipes? I’d love to hear about them!


Just look at this caramel apple cake from Upstate Ramblings.  I have an obsession with baking desserts and cool weather + desserts = my favorite.  This looks absolutely delicious and has apples baked

 This Homemade Apple Butter from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom looks absolutely amazing.  I love apple butter.


I love all things pumpkin and was so excited when I saw this Pumpkin Ice Cream recipe from Classy Clutter.  Yes you need an ice cream machine but totally worth it just to have this recipe!

And Pumpkin Bread!  I love all types of bread, banana, cranberry, Amish and Pumpkin!  Check out this Pumpkin Bread from Simply Sweet Home.  Last time I was at the grocery I specifically bought some pumpkin so I could make some bread.
