Recipe: French Apple Cobbler


Well, it’s back to school time, summer is winding down and the days are already growing shorter. You know what that means…it’s time for wonderful, fresh, northwest apples and pears. Here’s a classic favorite with a bit of a twist and it’s a lot quicker and easier than rolling out dough.

Try a mix of sweet and tart apples of different colors and even throw in some Asian Pears for a more complex flavor.

And if you really are not in the mood to make cobbler yourself, you can buy freshly-made pies and cobbler from our Store Deli!
