Organic Apple and Dark Tart Cherry Cobbler

IMG_1972

I have always liked eating baked apples with a little cinnamon and sugar. This morning I thought about using the apples in a simple, delicious and healthy dessert. I also wanted to incorporate the frozen dark tart cherries that I had in my freezer. So I thought a cobbler would be the perfect way to use both the apples and the cherries. My husband, who is my biggest critic, loved this! Hope you do too!

Apple Filling:

  • 4 organic gala apples, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons organic sugar

Mix apples, cinnamon and sugar together in a medium bowl and cook in microwave for 1½ minutes.

Cherry Filling:

  • 1 ½ cups frozen organic dark tart cherries
  • 3 teaspoons organic sugar

Blend together in a medium bowl and cook in microwave for 1 minutes:

Crumble Topping:

  • ¼ cup organic all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour
  • 3 tablespoons organic sugar
  • 2 tablespoons organic butter
  • Pinch of sea salt

Using a pastry blender, mix ingredients together in a small bowl so that you have small clumps.

Cobbler Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Using a vegetable oil and a paper towel, grease the inside of 6 (3½” x 1¾”) ramekins.
  3. Place apples along with a little juice on the bottom of each ramekin. Then add the cherries along with a little juice. Finally, sprinkle with crumble topping.
  4. Place ramekins on top of a baking sheet. Bake until topping is brown and juices are bubbling around the edges, about 35 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Serves 6.
