Review 1:”My son kept wanting an apple cobbler, i made one for Thanksgiving and he really loved it, I thought that it was a little too sweet, but am using this same recipe to make for Christmas.
Review 2:”The recipe was so easy! I have never seen an egg added to the crumble but I will absolutely be adding one to every crumble from now on. It seemed to keep the crumble together and so much more crisp. Everybody loved it and me for the recipe!
Review 3:”I made this for Christmas and was very pleased with the results.

Ingredients :
For the apple filling
10 cups apples peeled, cored and cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons water
For the cobbler topping
1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter cold, cut into small pieces
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coarse sugar
cooking spray
vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for serving optional

Directions :
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9′ x 13′ pan with cooking spray.
For the filling: Place the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon juice and water in a large bowl. Toss to coat.
Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pan in an even layer.
For the topping: Place the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry blender or two forks to cut the butter into the flour mixture until the batter looks like small coarse pebbles.
Pour the buttermilk and vanilla extract into the flour mixture. Stir to make a batter.
Place spoonfuls of the batter mixture over the apples. Top with the coarse sugar.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and apples are tender. If the biscuits look like they’re browning too quickly, you can cover the dish with a piece of foil.
Let cool for at least
