Cobbler Pie

What?  Yeah.  Took my favorite apple pie filling, cobbled it instead of crusting it, and made it into a cobbler pie.

That's only a tiny bit of what I did this weekend.  The other bit included making mini cupcakes, two types of fudge, and oatmeal cookie bites for 100 people, writing run-on sentences, and hosting a Thanksgiving dinner with friends for which I made pie, this aforementioned cobbler pie, and a whole turkey, and for which guests brought way too many mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, sweet potato gnocchi, roasted sweet potatoes with marshmallows (yeah we like sweet potatoes), green beans, stuffing, rolls, cranberry sauce (canned and homemade), and more pie.

But I didn't take pictures of any of that, so all you get to see is the cobbler pie.  The fact that people ate almost all of it after shoving all that food listed above in their mouths is a testament to how great this cobbler pie creation is.

Here's what you'll need:

1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
2 Tbs Dry Tapioca
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 tsp Lemon Juice, plus a little extra for the apples
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
5 Large Granny Smith Apples

1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease 8x8" baking dish.

2. Peel and very thinly slice apples.  Keep slices in a bowl of water with a dash of lemon juice to prevent browning.

3. Combine the cream, tapioca, sugar, salt, spices and lemon juice in a large bowl, whisking until well combined.  Add apple slices and toss lightly until apples are coated with cream mixture.

4. Place apples in prepared baking dish, doing your best to not leave any giant gaps, aka don't just dump the apples in, place them in a nice little pattern.  Pour any cream mixture left in your bowl over the top of the apples.  Now make the crumble.

1 Egg
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter, melted

5. Beat egg and sugars well.  Add in flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, stirring until well combined and crumbly.  Sprinkle evenly over apples.  Drizzle melted butter evenly over crumble.

6. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes until crumble topping is browned.  Cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
Yeah.  That's homemade whipped cream.
How, you ask?
Put heavy whipping cream and a little bit of sugar
in a mixer and beat until it looks like whipped cream.
You're welcome.
