What happens when the Frakenstorm and apples collide?


When life gives you a Frankenstorm and apples that are getting soft, what does one do? One makes apple cobbler with homemade whipped cream, of course.

Apple Cobbler


  • 6-8 apples, cut into wedges. I used a mix of about 3-4 different varieties.
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of  lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  • 1 cup of white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of sale
  • 3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cubed.
  • 1/4 cup boiling water


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Toss peaches with the 1/4 sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg in a glass (or non-reactive) baking dish.
  3. Stir together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the cubed butter and combine it with the flour mixture until butter is lentil-sized or smaller.
  4. Add the water and stir.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the topping over the apples. I get about 6 big spoonfuls.
  6. Bake about 25 minutes or until top is golden.

Serve topped with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It’s also fabulous without any accompaniment.
