Tell me this does not look amazing, even a blind man can see how exquisite they are.

Apple Cobbler Cups

This is a dessert that I am going to take credit for inventing although Im sure some one has done it prior.  What I mean by a Chris Lisanti original is that I got the idea for it with out any previous musings.  What is an Apple Cobbler Cup you ask?  Only the greatest dessert ever that is easy to make and can be ready to eat in less then three hours.  Basically they are personalized apple cobblers with an oatmeal cookie crust about the size of a cup cake.  If your stuck on what to bring to the table this holiday season The Apple Cobbler Cup just may save the day.  Trust me all your friends and family will think your quite the savvy cook and since just about no one reads this blog you can even take all the credit for it.  I wont be mad; I promise.  I made these guys for Thanksgiving and it stole the show.

Ingredient List:

  • Granny Smith Apples – 4 (cut into Small bite size triangular pieces)
  • Lemon Juice – 5 oz
  • Sugar – 2 ½ Cups
  • Cinnamon – 1 Tablespoon
  • Butter – 16 oz
  • Flour – 1 1/3 Cup
  • Baking Powder – 2 ½ Teaspoons
  • Raisins – ¾ cup
  • Nutmeg – Teaspoon
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Egg – 1
  • Vanilla – 1 Teaspoon
  • Salt – pinch
  • Oat Meal Cookies – 1 ½ Cup (crumbed)
  • Almonds – ½ cup Roasted

 

Step 1: Prep ApplesPeeling your apples is your call.  Personally I like to leave my skin on.  If you decide to leave skin make sure to clean the apples thoroughly.  Also any type of apples can be used I prefer Granny Smiths, but if you notice in my sample picture I used Macintosh Apples because that is what I had in my fridge at the time. Cut apples into bite size triangular pieces, keep in mind it is going into a cup cake shell.  In a medium mixing bowl add the lemon juice and mix with about a cup of cold water and ½ cup of sugar.  Place cut apples inside bowl, cover and let soak in refrigerator for at least three hours.  I leave mine over night.

Step 2: Mix all Dry Ingredients – In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, baking powder, Raisins, Salt.  Drain Apples from Lemon water in step 1 and add them to mixture as well.  Blend together.

Step 3: Mix Wet IngredientsIn a small mixing bowl combine Egg, Vanilla and Milk.  Add to mixture from step 2 and blend till you have a batter like consistency.

Your finished mix.

Step 4: Melt ButterIn a small boiling pan melt 16 oz of butter (3 sticks).  Grease two pans of 12 count cup cakes with butter or cooking spray.

Step 5: Fill Cup CakesCrumb up 1 ½ cups of Oatmeal Cookies (about 8-10) and fill each cup with just under 1 inch of cookie crumbs.  This will be your bottom.  Equally disperse the butter throughout all 24 cups.  Top off all cups with completed apple mixture from step 3. Leave about ¼ inch of space in each cup for growth.

Filling your cups.

Step 6: BakePreheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Bake for around 55-60 minutes.  Top should look cake like when down. Let cool in fridge for about an hour before serving.

This is what your baked cups should look like.

Step 7: Prepare AlmondsEither smash up ½ cup or so of almonds or use prepackaged pieces.  Melt 2 oz of butter with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a small roasting pan.  When melted add almonds, stir then bake at 350 degrees F for eight to ten minutes till Almonds are browned.  Keep a close eye because they can burn up pretty fast.  Add to the top of your cobbler cups to finish them off.
