an apple cobbler wonder

My sister. Newly married. Sort of. Newly mommied. And very brave in the kitchen. She tries anything for anyone and she's rocking it. Well she was kind to me a few weeks ago and made my favorite dessert of all time... and I just didn't even know it yet. She just knew that I loved apple desserts with cinnamon sugar involved. And with some vanilla ice cream. So she made it. And. Banging.

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Butter (or use cooking spray) a 9x13, 9x11 or 9x9 pan. Live a little if you please. I used a 9x11, Beth used a 9x13. 

5 cups apples, cored, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour (you can add more if you feel like the apples aren't coated enough)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I did mine heaping because I heart cinnamon)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I let a few drops go over this because again, I heart vanilla)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces

Combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, vanilla and water in a bowl and then pour into baking dish. Dot with butter.

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
cinnamon/sugar/brown sugar mixture for topping, optional (but if you opt out you be crazy)

In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the beaten egg and softened butter and mix until combined. Use cute assistant if available. Using a spoon, drop the batter evenly over the apple mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon/sugar/brown sugar mixture on top if you see fit.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.

And there you have it. My new favoritest Fall recipe.

I am linking up with Helene and Tay and their #blogtober14 challenge.
