Apple Cobbler

Last night I had too much to do, but I had a bag of apples that begged, nay, demanded to become apple cobbler. So, I shirked on my ASL studying and borrowed an apple peeler-corer-slicer from Christyn and Brian (thank you for living so close!) and made yummy oatmeal crumble topped apple cobbler. It was frightfully easy.

The bag of apples were a gift from Josh from his weekend apple picking adventure. Every apple in the bag was different. Some were sweet like a Red Delicious. Others were tart like a Granny Smith. Others tasted unlike any apple I could identify, but oh those were the best! So, I peeled-cored-sliced them all and jumbled them together in a bowl. Then I tossed them with a mixture of brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and flour. I dumped them into a small Pyrex baking dish and squirted a bit of lemon juice over it all. Then I added the oatmeal-crumb topping (much the same, but with butter and 3/4 cup of oatmeal as well. Then it was into the oven for 40 minutes.

What came out exceeded my expectations. The apples were extraordinary. Sweet and tangy. The crumb topping was like having your apple pie with a oatmeal cookie crust. I'm done for. I could've eaten the whole thing in one sitting save for wanting to have more tomorrow. Luckily, I don't have access to such fabulous apples all the time, so I have to ration this batch out through the weekend. But oh so good! Yum!
