Spicy Apple Cobbler - CopySoutherners love cobbler and will try it many different ways. This apple cobbler makes a great dessert and another way to use up apples.

8 small or 6 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla
Place apples in skillet and cover with remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, reduce heat and simmer 5 to 10 minutes.  Pour into a sprayed 9 inch square dish.
 Spicy Apple Cobbler 2 - Copy
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon                  
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1 egg
About 5 tablespoons milk
Mix topping ingredients in a bowl and beat till smooth with a whisk.  Drop over apples by spoonfuls and spread.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven 20 – 25 minutes until topping is brown.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream on top.  Enjoy!
Note:  I have added a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese to this recipe by spreading over the apples before adding the dough on top.
