First Place Apple Cobbler Recipe

We held the Annual Chili and Dessert Cookoff at our house last night and had almost 50 people over! There were seven chilis and three desserts that competed and my (mom's) apple cobbler won! It is de-lic-ious, super easy and pretty fast to make. Perfect for the fall, hot or cold, fresh or leftover and for dessert or breakfast (or any time really!)

Here's how I made it...

Peel and slice 4 Granny Smith apples and 5 Jonathan apples. You might need more or less apples depending on their size, but you want them to fill a 9x13 casserole pan. Toss with 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar, depending on the tartness of the apples and up to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon (or more, if you love it like I do!).
In a bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Scramble an egg in a seperate bowl and add it to the dry mixture. Combine until crumbly and sprinkle over the apple slices. Melt 6-8 tablespoons of butter and pour over the topping. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes, or until the topping is slightly browned and the apples are fork tender. We ate it just like that, but it would be awesome with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream too.

Unfortunately, as soon it was declared the winner, the rest of it was gobbled up... I'm going to have to make another one today!
