Easy Apple Cobbler
I will admit that cooking dessert is not my “thing.” The task of baking seemed intimidating to me for a long time, and I’ve only recently gotten comfortable making desserts. I first made this apple cobbler last year at Thanksgiving. I didn’t want to do a store bought pie again, but I had a lot of other things going on and didn’t want to stress over a complicated dessert. When I looked on Pinterest, I was looking for something fall-ish and something with few ingredients and that I didn’t have to make a pastry for.
Along with most of my other Thanksgiving dishes, I made this the day before, and it was just perfect at the end of Thanksgiving dinner with some vanilla bean ice cream.
