Recipe: French Apple Cobbler

Homemade_apple_cobbler_(2)

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!
