This is a great recipe. I used a large cortland apple. Instead of the apple pie spice I used cinnamon. I ate one and my son asked me what I was eating and he wanted the other one. So I'll have to do it again LOL thanks Paula :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap October 2010
To me with lots of cobbler/crisp experience I felt what made this recipe was using Baking Spice Blend Mix as the orange zest set this apart! I made ours gluten free by using a mix of white rice flour and half the amount of tapioca starch. I doubled the recipe and put it in one custard pan. I had to use some canola oil along with the butter as I didn't have enough, that worked OK. I may make this again always using Baking Spice Blend Mix. Made for RECIPE SWAP #45 - October 2010.
This doesn't seem like a recipe where much can go wrong, but we thought the cobbler was too sweet and too dry. I had higher hopes because PaulaG's recipes are always delicious. Sorry-maybe the problems lie with my preparation technique, but in the future I think I'll stick to making apple cobbler the old-fashioned way rather than this short-cut version.
My husband really liked this! I had to re-do the topping because I added too much butter the first time (used the full 2 tbsp of Blue Bonnet light margarine; it was all I had!). Next time I used about 1 tbsp (heaping) & it seemed to work fine. I used Splenda brown sugar but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Topped w/ some fat free whipped cream & it made a great presentation! Thank u for sharing.
Delish! This is just perfect for when you want something sweet, yet fairly healthy and you want it quick! We're watching our weight, so it's nice to not have extra helpings around to tempt us and this was the right amount to satisfy us. The topping came out slightly crunchy and flavored the apples so nicely. I did add a pinch of nutmeg to the topping mix just because I love the flavor. Thanks Paula for another winner!

Great! I'm always on the lookout for great recipes that can be made for two (it's just myself and DH) and can be skinnied. I used Splenda sugar blends and Smart Balance Light butter and this was fantastic! Easy to toss together for a warm winter treat. I was feeling fiesty so I added a few sprinkles of crushed Butterfinger Bar ontop with vanilla ice cream. Thanks PaulaG!
So very good. I quadrupled the recipe as I had these nifty 4 x 7 foil pans with lids, and wanted to freeze some. I ended up with 3 pans in total. I didn't sprinkle with water, as the apples I used were Gravensteins, and they are very, very juicy this year. I also didn't have any sugar cinnamon, so I subbed with a mix of brown sugar and your Baking Spice Blend Mix(which is fabulous by the way). The baking time was perfect, and the topping is out of this world. I kept picking at it while it was cooling. Now I have a partially naked pan of apple cobbler. Thanks Paula for *another* wonderful recipe.
I doubled this so there would be leftovers BUT not for long !!! I adore this type of comfort food - made for ZWT 4
This is a keeper.It's so nice to find recipes for 2.We really enjoyed this old fashion recipe again. I made it my toaster oven;thanks for sharing. I made t his for WT4. Rita
Deeelicious! The flavours here are just outstanding. I loved the strong spicy cinnamon flavour which was mellowed a bit by the sweetness of the cobbler. That said I found this to be the perfect sweetness. This made a perfect amount for two. I really enjoyed this cobbler and will definitely be making it often when our apple trees are full of apples! Thanks Paula. Reviewed during ZWT 4.
