Apple Cranberry Cobbler

Would you like a sweet and tangy dessert to serve your family after dinner? This Apple Cranberry Cobbler is perfect for dessert any night of the week.

This past week my mother-in-law fell and broke her ankle. Unfortunately, it was a bad break and required surgery. She’s doing well, but obviously it’s not easy for her to get around to make her own food.

So, I’ve been making her dinner and bringing it to her for the past few days. Last night, I decided to add a dessert into the mix. Usually, I’d make a pie or a cake, but I just didn’t have time.

My Apple Crunch Pie is one of her favorites, and I often throw in cranberries. But, I didn’t have time to make a full pie, so instead I threw together this Apple Cranberry Cobbler.

It was a huge hit and everyone loved it!

Since I was short on time, I pre-cooked the apples and cranberries, then just dumped the cobbler topping over it before baking. It was super simple to throw together and it took less than 30 minutes from start to finish.

This Apple Cranberry Cobbler is perfect for dessert any night of the week. Plus, it’s pretty enough to serve for a special occasion.

You could even switch out the fruit and use peaches, nectarines or your favorite berries instead of apples, too.

When I first took it out of the oven it had a crunchy, cobbler topping, but since I had to travel with it, I wrapped it in foil. When we finally had it after dinner, it was so soft, almost like bread pudding and it was just perfect.

I will definitely be putting this recipe back on my menu plan in the future.
