Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, toss the apples with 1 tablespoon of the flour, 3/4 cup of the granulated sugar, the dark brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Scrape the apples into a 3-quart oval baking dish.

  • In a food processor, pulse the remaining 3/4 cup of flour and 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar with the cornmeal, baking powder and salt until combined. Add the butter and pulse until pea-size pieces form, about 30 seconds. Add 3/4 cup of the heavy cream and pulse until moist crumbs form. Scrape the crumbs into a medium bowl, stir with a rubber spatula until evenly moistened, then sprinkle over the apples. Brush the topping with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar.

  • Bake the cobbler for about 50 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
