I have never published a recipe of mine before, so I hope this works as good for you as it does for me :]
This recipe is made with no processed (white) sugar added. This cobbler is made with honey and applesauce to sweeten it.
Pre-Heat your oven to 375 F
Total baking time 25-30 mins
You will need...
1 Small Bowl
3 Mixing Bowls
1 Cat Tongues (rubber spatulas)
1 8x8 or 9x9 Baking Dish
4 Apples, Peeled and Cut (I like mine cut into thin slices)
1/2 Cup Applesauce
1/3 Cup Honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon flour
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamin
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
(the rest of the spices are optional, but I think you should just try it with these as well)
Cobbler Crust Ingredients
1 Cup Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 teaspoon Applesauce
1/4 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Egg, Slightly Beaten
Starting by peeling and cutting up your apples, set aside. Mix all dry filling ingredients together in the small bowl, set aside. In a mixing bowl, add all of the wet filling ingredients together and mix. Next, mix the dry filling ingredients into the wet filling ingredient mixture. Pour the filling mixture into the mixing bowl with the apples, slightly stir. You don't want to crush the apples, just make sure they are covered in the filling mixture. Make sure to scrape all remaining wet ingredients out of bowl with cat tongue. Set apples aside. Rinse cat tongue and wet ingredient bowl out, you will need them for the cobbler crust wet ingredients.
Add all cobbler crust dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl, set aside. Take rinsed bowl and beat egg slightly in it. Add the rest of the wet cobbler crust ingredients to beaten egg, and mix one ingredient as a time, saving the butter for last. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly, using cat tongue to scrap all remaining dry ingredients from sides into mixture. You want all of it!
Spray baking dish with non-cooking spray. Put apples, mixed with filling mixture, into baking dish, then cover with cobbler crust topping mixture. Make as even as you can without trying to mess with it too much. You don't want to smear it all around. Cover cobbler with tin foil and put in over. Set timer for 15 mins, when timer goes off take tin foil off and continue baking. This prevents cobbler from getting too brown during the cooking process. Continue baking for an additional 10 mins, uncovered. You may need to cook it for up to an additional 5 mins. Check center of crust periodically for when it will be done. If it looks a bit gooey it needs another minute or two. If crust is looking too brown to keep cooking, recover with tin foil.
Cool for 15 mins before attempting to eat!
Goes great with vanilla almond milk ice cream :]
I have pictures of my process, hope they help!
I hope you all had a spooktacular Halloween! I decided to ordered chinese food and watched a bunch of Halloween favorites (while getting some work done, shh!).

Hello and welcome to the Colorado Springs Housewives in the City page! I hope you have a calendar handy, because I am going to fill it with some fun!
I am currently working as a restaurant manager in Old Colorado City, located here in Colorado Springs. I am a Valentine baby and love every holiday, but my favorite season is Fall. I am an artist (yeah, yeah, yeah, I know how that sounds) and a seamstress, I love to make crafts and cook and sing! My favorite color is purple, I love pizza and cheeseburgers, I believe in aliens, I like to climb trees and rocks, and as a kid I was basically the girl from 'Brave'. I have been spit on, slapped, kicked, punched, hated and just generally disliked by plenty. I don't care anymore. I have done plenty that I am proud of. I have come to terms with my life and I am going to live it. You can be angry about the hand you're dealt, or you can work with it. You can be angry about your shitty day, or you can tell it to someone to brighten theirs. You have to realize that stories are great because of the bad things that happen and how we push thru them, not because everything went well. No great story comes from peace and quiet. I'm going to start making some noise!
This blog is about us housewives, we are human and we have needs. Like having a night off! Or at least having fun once in awhile! I will be trying my hardest to help you do just that from now on. Just because we take care of our houses doesn't mean we are chained to them.
I have been with my boyfriend, Chad, for almost 5 years now (farts and all). This is definitely the longest relationship I have ever had. We live together with our 2 fur babies, both boys, Donatello Wolfenstein (Donnie) a siberian husky and Sir Scout Salot (Scout) a chocolate lab. We both love them to pieces and couldn't imagine not having them in our lives, and I hope that someday they will be my kid's dogs too.
I am almost 27 years old... boy, that is weird to see written down! That number looks so much bigger when you say it's an age lol. As a kid, I really only dreamed about what my life would look like up to about 23, I never thought about it this far. Of course, I made assumptions, like most children, about my future. Like at age 5 I decided I would be married by 22 and get started on making children and watch them grow up. To grow up, as I had done, by age 22. It wasn't until I was 23 that I realized that nobody feels grown up and nobody knows what they are doing (have you seen Joe Rogan do stand-up? He puts it better than I could). It was the scariest thing to think. There was no path designed, there was no guaranteed 'plan of attack', we are all just aimless.
Did you know that most forest trails are actually started by the wildlife, like deer? They walk in a direction and all the other deer just follow the scent of the first ones. Over time, deer following deer, a path is beaten. That's what history is, just a bunch of us following each other, trying to find a path. But we forget that a path doesn't actually exist, it's just an arbitrary line that we put meaning to. We think that because our parents followed this path, this is THE path. But a path is just where the grass has worn away, a path doesn't exist and we are all following each other's scent because we are not sure what else to do. We are told to follow the path and we will be fine, but there are brigands waiting down the line, they followed this 'path' too. Even when we find this path to be false, we try to stick to the path because it makes us feel safe. We keep looking for the path, to guide us, to make us feel like we have somewhere to be... but there is no path. Not even to the deer, we are all just trying to follow each other's scent, hoping that what we are smelling is 'success'.
Now that I've gotten used to this 'mid-twenties crisis' (I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm 'past' it), I now take comfort in the thought that nobody else knows what we are doing, nobody else feels like a 'grown-up' either. We may not know where we are going, but we are together! You are not alone it feeling this way, you are not alone.
Welcome to the first time I've ever written a blog! My 13 year old self thought I would be writing them all the time. I would have important things to say and write, surely! (hah, yeah, ok) By 19, I thought, why would I do that? Nobody knows me or cares enough about anything I do or say for it to matter what I put down. Why should I write at all?
I found a note between my cousin and I (in code, of course) from when we were little, we were discussing something silly. Something which at one point I cared about. Though the topic is no longer important, I enjoyed reading it.
Have you ever seen MadMen? This character, Ken Cozgrove, wasn't the most important character, but it didn't matter what he said, it just mattered that he wrote something down. When his boss told him he couldn't write anymore, even though it didn't hurt the company for him to be writing books on the side, they told him to stop. Even though that is what he loved to do, he agreed. It didn't seem like it mattered compared to his job. In an episode, he was accidentally shot in the face by a client. As he fell backwards and stopped moving, all I could think was "the things he wrote are now the last, he wasn't finished writing! He had more left!".
My dad used to tell me "you make a joke, if it makes you laugh. You say something funny for yourself, if it amuses someone else, great. But you make yourself laugh first." I've tried to remember that above all things. You need to make yourself laugh first.
Sometimes you have to remember to make yourself laugh first, that it doesn't always matter what you put down as long as it is something, because someday you may be gone and what you have written may be all that is left (no matter how silly). Like Ken Cozgrove, you have so much left to write that you don't even know. You need to make yourself laugh first.
(And just because I know you are freaking out about it, Ken survived being shot it the face hah.)
I'm going to live my life making myself laugh first. You are welcome to join me :]
