Strawberry Apple Cobbler
- 4-5 Gala apples (or any apple type) peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 and 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup melted unsalted whipped butter (1/4 cup of this is for last five minutes)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss gently the apples and strawberries with the lemon juice in a bowl. Spoon them evenly into a 10 inch round baking dish. In another bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg. Mix together until the mixture is crumbly and blended together. Sprinkle this mixture over the entire surface of the fruit in the baking dish. When done, melt 1/2 cup butter (not the whole 3/4 cup of butter) and then spoon the butter carefully over as much of the topping as possible.
There will be some spots not quite covered at this point, but you will be covering those in the last five minutes of baking, so don’t worry. Put the baking dish on a foil lined baking sheet in case any juices drip over. Bake your cobbler at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the topping is golden brown. Mine took 60 minutes to bake completely. When you think you have about five minutes left, have your remaining 1/4 cup melted butter ready to spoon on any dry spots in the topping and then over the rest of the top surface. After the last five minutes, remove from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before spooning servings on to plates.
