Luscious Apple Cobbler


Easier than pie and with fewer calories, this is an outstanding dessert!

Serves 6.



  • 4 c sweet, firm apples, peeled, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 c water
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 c all purpose flour
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt (rounded)
  • 1/4 c vegetable shortening, melted
  • 1/2 c whole milk



  1. Place the apples in a large pot. Add cornstarch dissolved in the quarter-cup of water, lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat and simmer 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

Batter and Baking:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 inch baking pan.
  2. Into a large bowl, sift the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Pour in the shortening and milk. Mix until combined in a biscuit-like batter.
  4. Place apples in the bottom of prepared baking dish in an even layer.
  5. Spoon the batter over the top. (Batter need not cover everything completely.)
  6. Bake 30 minutes. Cool 30 minutes before cutting in 6 equal portions and serving. If desired trickle with whole milk, or dollop with whipped cream.
