Great Grandma’s Best Apple Cobbler Recipe


1.  1 can Apple pie filling (or make your own!)

2. 1 Cup Bisquick

3. 1 Cup Sugar

4. 1 Cup Milk  (Canned milk makes a richer recipe!)

5.  1/2 tsp cinnamon.

6.  1 tsp vanilla.

Cooking:   1   5″ X 9″ casserole disk.

Oven:  Pre-heat oven to 350 deg.

Some refer to this recipe as ‘cuppa cuppa cuppa’  because it is cup sugar, milk, biquick.  It’s easy.

Coat the casserole dish with vegetable oil or olive oil by placing a drop in the bottom and spreading it around so it covers all surfaces.  Set aside.

Mix dry ingredients:    1 cup of Bisquick,  1 cup of Sugar,   1/2 tsp cinnamon in a large bowl.  

Add wet ingredients:   add 1 cup of milk to dry portion and blend until thoroughly.   Add 1 tsp of vanilla. and mix.   The batter may be slightly lumping but most will be gone.  Batter will be thick and not runny.  Pour the batter into the casserole dish to the middle level.  Caution:  Don’t overfill the dish.  Set this aside.

Open Fruit filling.   (Or retrieve the fruit filling you cooked.)

Add fruit filling by the spoon-full evenly around the casserole dish.  The fruit will sink slightly but should be visible.  This recipe uses about 1 can.   set aside.   It’s ok for this to sit for a few minutes before you start baking it.

place a cookie sheet on the bottom shelf of your oven.  This is to catch any overflow from the cooking cobbler.  Place the casserole dish on the middle rack.    

Bake at 350 deg for 45 – 50 minutes or until the top is golden brown.  A toothpick should come out clean when it’s done.  For altitude  adjustment, add about 5 minutes.

Remove the dish from the oven, set on a rack to cool for approximately 20 minutes.   

Cut in 1 inch squares,  serves about 20 and they will come back for more!
