This Easy Apple Cobbler is made with just 6 ingredients and oven-ready in under 5 minutes. Delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
When it comes to apple picking, I always have really good intentions. I plan to go, I enjoy going, I really really want to go… but somehow, we always seem to miss it. Because our fall calendar is packed! And, well, something’s gotta give.
Which is probably why this Easy Apple Cobbler is one of my FAVORITE apple recipes. Because it starts with a can of apple pie filling! Which makes it quick, easy, and sooo delicious!
Now I just want to say – for those of you who are anti-pie filling – I get it! When apples are in season, you want to use fresh apples. And…you can! You can 100% make your own homemade pie filling. It’s just that, if your schedule is anything like ours is, you want quick. You need quick! And you need easy. You need the can.
Either way, I can guarantee that you’re going to love this cobbler. It couldn’t be easier to make or more perfect for fall. From one busy person to another, you’re welcome!
One of the things I love about this recipe is that it starts with a can of apple pie filling. Don’t get me wrong… I love using fresh fruit just as much as the next person… but sometimes I just need a recipe that’s quick and easy. And THIS IS IT! (You can definitely feel free to substitute homemade apple pie filling if you’d like.)
Using self-rising flour also makes this recipe extra quick and easy, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can combine 1 c. all purpose flour with 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt.
