Cranberry Apple Cobbler
- 3 c fresh cranberries
- 2 c orange juice
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1/3 c raisins
- 1/3 c apple sauce, unsweetened, plain
- 2 apples, any variety of firm apple peeled, cored and diced
- 1 1/3 c all-purpose, unbleached flour
- 1/3 c brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 5 Tb cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/3 c + 1 Tb milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- vanilla ice cream
- To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Coat the inside of a baking dish with butter. The dish should be about 8×12 inches, or an equivalent size. I use a 12" cast iron skillet. Set it aside for now.
- Combine the cranberries, orange juice and sugar in a sauce pan. Bring them to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 2 minutes, or until the cranberries begin to pop and soften.
- Add in the apples, apple sauce and raisins, stir together for just a minute, then remove them from the heat.
- In your mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk those together.
- Add the cold butter. Use a pastry blender to cut in the butter, until there are no pieces of butter that are larger than a pea.
- Combine the milk, and egg in a small dish. Whisk them together until they are smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir them together until they are just combined.
- Spread the fruit filling in your prepared baking dish.
- Scoop the batter onto the top of the fruit, forming 7 or 8 little mounds of the cobbler topping, like floating biscuits.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- When you take the cobbler from the oven, allow it to rest for about 5 minutes before serving it with some vanilla ice cream.
