A few days ago Jake and I went to visit his parents. They live in Pville so it’s a bit of a hike to get out to seem them, but always a treat whenever we do. This last time, upon entering their house, I thought I smelled freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. They’re not vegan so I knew I wouldn’t be able to have any, which was a little disappointing. It was even more disappointing when I learned it wasn’t cookies, but a freshly made grilled-cheese.
Not sure how I confused the smell, but none-the-less I was left with a craving. One I intended to fill as soon as we left with a quick stop into Whole Foods for some Eat Pastry cookie dough.
Unfortunately Whole Foods was a little out of our way and we were just too tired to deal with their inevitable Sunday crowds.
Bummed, but hungry for something sweet when I got home I went for an apple and had a brilliant idea. I’ve made this cobbler before, but haven’t in about a year or more. What’s so great about it is that it’s super easy and quick!
4 large apples (I used granny smith)
Chop apples and put in a medium-sized mixing bowl. At just a bit of water (1/4 cup or so), sugar and cinnamon. Toss until apples are well coated. Transfer apples to a baking dish (I used an 8×8 one).
Add more sugar, brown sugar, flour and oats to bowl. Mix. Crumble in Earth Balance with topping ingredients. Mix well until everything is pretty clumpy. Pour on top of apples.
Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.
